LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11)—Kentucky’s senior Senator was in Louisville today to kick-off his “Super Saturday” across the state.
Mitch McConnell, the Senate Minority Leader, met with supporters on Saturday morning at the Jefferson Co. Republican Headquarters in the Buechel area.
McConnell did not address his primary challenger during his talk, but noted that national Democrats will flood the Grimes campaign with money to make the general election competitive.
“You are participating in a presidential level campaign occurring in one state,” McConnell said. This is the biggest race in the country this year. I'm on the only Republican most of the whacky left-wingers on the coast have ever heard of and so they're going to send my opponent money and we're going to have a big race.”
While McConnell was in Louisville, he had 3,000 precinct captains and hundreds of other volunteers fanning out around the Commonwealth from six kick-off events.
His GOP challenger, Matt Bevin, is getting support from Freedomworks, a national conservative group that has set up offices in Kentucky.
