Senator Catherine Cortez Masto, Chair of the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, issued the following statement congratulating Amy McGrath on her primary victory in Kentucky:
'With Amy McGrath in the Senate, Kentuckians will finally have a champion who's on their side taking on the special interests and working across party lines to deliver affordable health care and lower prescription drug costs, better schools, and an economic recovery that puts hardworking families first. As a Marine Corps veteran, Amy doesn't back down from big fights and we're proud to stand with her in this one to defeat Mitch McConnell.'
Amy flew 89 combat missions in Iraq and Afghanistan over her 20 years in the U.S. Marine Corps, and her campaign is focused on service and putting all Kentuckians first. Since she entered the race last year, Kentucky has emerged as another defensive liability for Washington Republicans.
