Democratic U.S. Senate candidate, former Marine fighter pilot, Amy McGrath says her message of putting country above political party sets her apart from other candidates who have tried, and failed, to unseat Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. McGrath stopped in Paducah on Monday as part of a campaign tour across the region. Matt Markgraf sat down with McGrath outside a local coffee shop to talk about her positions on big issues and how she believes she can beat McConnell in 2020.

  After losing a congressional race last year, retired Marine fighter pilot Amy McGrath has set her sights on toppling Mitch McConnell from his seat in the U.S. Senate in 2020. And she will once again face the challenge of trying to appeal to voters in urban and rural parts of the state at the same time.

During her first interview of the campaign, McGrath revealed a new strategy for Democrats — accusing McConnell of getting in the way of President Donald Trump’s agenda.
