Moscow Mitch on de-funding schools in KY to build wall

From CNN today:

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said he would defend funding for a new middle school in his home state of Kentucky after it was selected as one of the military projects the Trump administration will delay in order to fund border wall construction.

Secretary of Defense Mark Esper announced on Tuesday the list of projects impacted by the funding move, which would shift a little less than $1.8 billion from projects in 23 states and three US territories. The middle school was slated to receive $62.6 million in February 2020.

"Senator McConnell recently talked to Secretary Esper regarding the issue and is committed to protecting funding for the Ft. Campbell Middle School project," a spokesman for McConnell said in a statement.


This could be interesting for Moscow Mitch McTurtle considering the upcoming elections.

If he "promises" to protect the funding and doesn't deliver, a lot of people in KY will be pissed off at him.

If he doesn't do anything, a lot of people in KY will be pissed off at him.

If he does something to protect the funding, T will be pissed off at him.

It would appear Mr. McTurtle might be in a tough spot right now.
