  Kentucky Sports Radio host Matt Jones is still weighing whether or not to get into the 2020 U.S. Senate race in an attempt to unseat Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

  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.
