McConnell's Democratic challenger says she likely would have voted for Kavanaugh

Source: The Hill

Amy McGrath, who announced this week she will challenge Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) in 2020, says in a new interview that she would have likely voted to confirm Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.

"I was very concerned about Judge Kavanaugh, what I felt like were the far-right stances that he had. However, there was nothing in his record that I think would disqualify him in any way," McGrath, a former Marine fighter pilot, told the Louisville Courier-Journal.

"And the fact is when you have the president and the Senate, this is our system and so I don't think there was anything that would have disqualified him in my mind," she said, adding when pressed on how she would have voted: "yeah, I probably would have voted for him."

Kavanaugh's nomination became a flashpoint after allegations of sexual assault from psychology professor and research psychologist Christine Blasey Ford, which he denied. Senators eventually voted 50-48 to confirm Kavanaugh, ending a rancorous debate over his nomination.

73. Kavanaugh IS a McChinless scheme.

One of his most reprehensible schemes, and with the worst, longest-lasting consequences for this country. Kavanaugh is one of the top two or three reasons McConnell has to go. Supporting that nomination is saying "I'm just as evil as a Repervert politician."

It's Kentucky, if she wants to win she's going to have to make a lot of us cringe. It sucks, I get that and agree completely. But, she's playing local politics and that's how you oust McConnell. Her donors balked, so she backtracked, which I also get, but it's not going to win her the race. It's a bad move.

It fucking sucks we can't understand microclimates on a large scale when it comes to politics as a party. We need this messed up, Trump loving state desperately!

This right here is why we lose. We're too stupid (ideologically pure) to know what's best for us to see what's right.

She said she is not Obama and was holding shotguns in campaign ads she still lost.

He faced Democratic Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes in the general election. Although polls showed the race was very close,[285] McConnell defeated Grimes, 56.2–40.7%.[286][287] The 15.5% margin of victory was one of his largest, second only to his 2002 margin

Due to circumstances we spent the end of last summer and most of September and October in the 6th district. I couldn’t believe the constant TV ads (we live in a red state but in a blue district where our congresswoman always goes unchallenged). Although I like Amy, many of her ads were cringeworthy and lacked any real message. I really hated the soccer one!

70. If she gonna win KY she gonna have to sound reasonable to KY

and that involves at the outset, not unsettling 60% of the state with coastal values

So as unhappy as we are to hear, she's doing what she believes she has to do

Think of this as Susan Collins of the Left

71. I'm ashamed of this thread,

She was asked a hypothetical question and fucked it up. She then recanted her first answer.

She never fucking voted for Kavanaugh and we don't know if she ever would have.

To me this thread is a pro-Mitch McConnell thread, I welcome someone turning me in. Next to Trump and Barr, Mitch McConnell is the biggest threat to our democracy, I will never be silent about that no matter how many people here try to silence me.

Amy is a combat veteran who did more for this country than people who are bashing her here. You go girl, take down the grim reaper. One good thing about this thread, because of it I am sending Amy 100 bucks.

77. So what?

She has to run a Ky race to win Ky voters.
Why say the opposite and make a nothing into something?

78. Now she says she wouldn't candidates have to get better at this Deflect!

Good grief, why answer hypotheticals? Why not deflect?

84. Edited because she reversed her stated position

Edit: She recanted. It was a weird single day flip-flop, but puts her on the correct side of the issue, so cool.

88. I don't care. McConnell must go...

... preferably on his own steam though I wouldn't mind if the Fates played a part.
