    Sen. Mitch McConnell Files For Seventh Term in Kentucky IlWna

    From The Associated Press

    Bruce Schreiner of The Associated Press wrote:FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) — Touting his leadership role as an asset for Middle America, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell filed for reelection Friday as the Kentucky Republican seeks a seventh term next year.

    McConnell, the longest-serving U.S. senator in Kentucky history, has tied himself closely to President Donald Trump as he prepares to defend himself against a host of Democrats wanting to unseat him.

    McConnell noted that among the four congressional leaders — the top-ranking Republican and Democratic leaders in both chambers — he's the only one from the U.S. heartland.

    “What I do is look out for Middle America and, in particular, my favorite state in Middle America — Kentucky," McConnell told reporters at the state Capitol.

    Talking about issues that hit home for Kentuckians, McConnell touted his role in making hemp a legal crop, saying the versatile plant might someday “be like tobacco used to be" as a staple for bluegrass state farmers. Kentucky has been at the national forefront of hemp's comeback among growers and processors.

    The senator said he has steered hundreds of millions of federal dollars to Kentucky to help combat opioid abuse in a state plagued by drug problems.

    McConnell also has been a key ally of Trump in putting conservative judges on the federal bench.

    As usual, McConnell has amassed a massive campaign fund, as has his highest-profile Democratic challenger, retired Marine combat pilot Amy McGrath, who narrowly lost a 2018 congressional race. As the top-ranking Republican in Congress, McConnell is a lightning rod for Democrats across the country who want to see him ousted from the Senate.

    McConnell downplayed the role Trump's impeachment could have in next year's elections.

    “It seems like it may not play much of a role in the president's reelection campaign," McConnell told reporters. “There's considerable anecdotal evidence that in the battleground states, it's not going over very well. The two articles of impeachment are pretty weak."

    McConnell later said that if impeachment isn't popular in swing states, then “it's probably not a popular move in Kentucky.” Trump won Kentucky by a landslide in 2016 .

    Asked if he thinks impeachment will be an issue by next fall, McConnell replied: “I would doubt it."

    After speaking with reporters, McConnell stopped by the governor's office to chat for a few minutes with Democratic Gov. Andy Beshear, who ousted the state's GOP incumbent in last month's election.

    This is one guy who needs to be out of the senate. Mitch McConnell is not going to live up to his oath of office, which is to "support and defend the CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES." In fact, as you can tell, he is bound and determined to "support and defend the PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES (namely) DONALD J. TRUMP." Which means he does not have Middle America's best interest in mind. He does not have America's best interest in heart. The only interest he has in mind is that of Donald Trump and I believe that will be his downfall.

    I certainly won't miss the guy when he does leave the Senate, but given that Kentucky hasn't had a Democratic senator in nearly 20 years, I don't think anybody should be getting their hopes up about him being defeated in the general election Sad .

    Though, is there any hope of him being primaried? I rather suspect not, but that'd be amusing, to say the least Razz .
