In a three-minute video released Tuesday, McGrath said McConnell has "bit by bit, year by year, turned Washington into something we all despise".
President Barack Obama speaks alongside Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R), Republican of Kentucky, prior to a meeting of the bipartisan, bicameral leadership of Congress in the Cabinet Room at the White House in Washington, DC, January 13, 2015. Trump also referenced comments by McGrath, a former Marine fighter pilot, that her emotional response to Trump's 2016 election was similar to the "the feeling I had after 9/11", which she says many Republicans, including the president in his Tweet, have misrepresented and taken out of context.
Jones, who previously boasted to Politico that he, and only he, could beat McConnell, confirmed to LEX 18 that he is still considering his options. Democrat Alison Lundergan Grimes launched a credible challenge against the senator in 2014, but McConnell still won with 56 percent of the vote.
Since becoming party leader, McConnell said he notices he gets "more attention than I used to". She lost despite reportedly raising millions of dollars more than Barr did. McGrath, who must first win the Democratic nomination, would not show similar restraint against McConnell.
Majority Leader McConnell cited civil-rights legislation yesterday, as well he should, because he was alive to witness the harassment, jailing, and betrayal of those responsible for that legislation by a government sworn to protect them.
McConnell's campaign posted a video soon after McGrath's campaign announcement that featured clips from her own ads during the 2018 run for a House seat.

"She has demonstrated everything it will take to win", said Ryan Aquilina, executive director of the Ditch Mitch Fund. "I look forward to the contest and laying out our differences to the people of Kentucky". Obama did say he applauded the underlying sentiment in "recognizing the continued legacy of slavery, I would prefer to focus on the issues that will directly address these problems".
He has also supported most of Trump's agenda and has seen to it that the president's judicial nominees have made it to the courts - including Supreme Court Justices Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh - a point he repeatedly emphasizes.
He's expected to argue during the upcoming campaign that he can use that power to benefit Kentucky.
When Obama ran for president in 2008, he opposed reparations for descendants of slavery because he anxious they could be used as an excuse not to work on challenges of racial inequality in education, housing and the workforce.
McConnell has in Kentucky a fiercely loyal team of political operatives who are known for hard-hitting campaigns that leave his opponents badly bruised.
