Leader McConnell, the only party leader in Washington not from California or New York, said that his reelection means Kentucky keeps a "front row seat" in the Senate:
McConnell: I never would have imagined that Kentuckians would make me the longest serving senator in Kentucky history....— Daniel Desrochers (@drdesrochers) November 4, 2020
"Tonight, Kentuckians said we're keeping our front row seat in the Senate."
Democrat operatives and donors poured upwards of $100 million into McGrath’s long shot bid to unseat the GOP’s most effective legislator in Washington; those millions are now worth about as much as McGrath’s political career.
