McConnell wants McGrath to halt ads


U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky is calling on one of the Democrats running for his seat to cease political advertising during the coronavirus outbreak.

McConnell’s campaign manager says in a statement that Amy McGrath’s decision to run what he called “deceitful ads” is “tasteless and shameful.”

McGrath’s campaign responded by criticizing McConnell for taking a long weekend and not passing a relief package as much of the nation shuts down due to COVID-19.

McConnell returned to Louisville last weekend to attend a swearing in ceremony for a federal judge.

McConnell said in a statement today (Tuesday) that he doesn’t plan to adjourn the Senate until an aid package is approved.
