Social distancing for most Americans means staying at home except for necessary trips and making minimal contact with others, but Amy McGrath interprets the concept of social distancing differently. McGrath is running a long-shot Senate bid against Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), and the Democratic Party has turned the race into a national spectacle, despite McGrath’s slim chance of unseating Leader McConnell.
McGrath released a new campaign ad on Tuesday afternoon, touting her social distancing practice, while a crew filmed in her living room:
Amy McGrath’s idea of social distancing is inviting a film crew into her home, with her family, to film a political ad. ??????? https://t.co/qclvtVQqPp— Josh Holmes (@HolmesJosh) March 24, 2020
Leader McConnell’s re-election campaign, however, has suspended activities until COVID-19 is under control, and committed to delivering resources to at-risk Kentuckians.
If you or someone you know is a senior or at-risk Kentuckian who is having trouble getting a meal, please send us a DM or email contact[at]teammitch[dot]com and we will do our very best to get one to you. We are all in this together.— Team Mitch (@Team_Mitch) March 16, 2020
McGrath also joined Sen. Schumer (D-NY) in lying about the bipartisan relief package proposed by Democratic and Republican leadership, falsely claiming that the CARES Act would not help working Americans.
Amy McGrath plays partisan games as Americans die, denying billions to our hospitals, small businesses, and first responders so she can get likes on Twitter. https://t.co/CwYHlH2kyh— Team Mitch (@Team_Mitch) March 23, 2020
