She has a Masters from Johns Hopkins. A BS in political science from the U.S. Naval Academy.
She's 44. A Democrat. The mother of three and married to a life-long Republican.
And she's running to unseat Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.
She says: "Everything that’s wrong with Washington had to start somewhere—it started with him."
Amy McGrath grew up in Kentucky and went to an all-girls Catholic school.
Unseating McConnell will be hard, but McConnell is not liked in Kentucky. His average approval rating is just 25%, and his unfavorable is 46.7%, according to Real Clear Politics.
McConnell's pesky business that sure smells like corruption isn't going to help him.
I’m running to replace Mitch McConnell in the U.S. Senate. Everything that’s wrong with Washington had to start somewhere—it started with him. With your help, we can defeat Mitch and defend democracy. Join us: https://t.co/c4b0WAp4ji pic.twitter.com/DNLjFkHGua

McGrath tried in 2018 in a run for Congress. She lost to a Republican by less than 10,000 votes, 51% to 47.8% – which is awfully close.
UPDATE: 8:10 AM ET –
"Defeat Mitch" is trending on Twitter.
