Mitch McConnell’s Democratic rival, Amy McGrath, has raised almost 11 million dollars in the past 3 months.

That is a lot of damn money for a Senate race.

Amy McGrath, the Democrat who nearly flipped a conservative House district in Kentucky in 2018, raised nearly $11 million in the past three months for her bid to unseat Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), her campaign said.

McGrath pulled in $10.7 million in the third fundraising quarter, the first since announcing her Senate campaign in July. That haul is made up of more than 299,000 contributions, her campaign said. The average donation size was $36.

It’s a staggering haul for any Senate candidate, and especially a nonincumbent, exceeding the quarterly hauls of several presidential candidates. By comparison, Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.) raised $6 million for his White House bid, while Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.) raised $4.8 million.

It’s only slightly less than the $11.6 million raised by Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.), one of the most well-known Democrats in the presidential field, in the past three months.

That financial haul is likely to put her in a strong position to take on McConnell next year. The top Senate Republican has yet to disclose his third-quarter fundraising figures, but McGrath’s total eclipses what he raised in the first six months of the year. He pulled in $1.8 million in the first quarter and another $2.5 million in the second.

I am lazer focused on Trump being impeached, but if I could ask for two gifts from Santa in 2020, it would be that Mitch McConnell also lose his Senate seat as well. 

Does that sound greedy?

Well too damn bad.

      Kentuckians will tell you what wonderful people they are and get huffy when you point out that Kentuckians are always electing the worst people to high office.

      Next time I’ll ask if it’s a case of “love the sinner, hate the sin” because that would be admitting that voting for McConnell is a sin.

      I’d be wanting Mitch McConnell dead. Only death will stop him perpetrating evil on the United States.

    388 days until Mitch is voted out. What a fucking prick.

    You know you raised your kids right when, although in college, they make a contribution to her campaign.
    I’m so proud of them.
