KENTUCKY 2020 SENATE RACE: WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW 

That Kentucky man, Kenneth Blair, on Tuesday posted a past photo with McGrath and former Democratic House contender Patti Piat. “This was the first time I met Future KY Senator Amy McGrath. Also the first time I met future congresswoman Patti Piat. Hotel Covington,” Blair wrote.

According to local reports, Blair hung President Trump in effigy in front of his house after Trump took the oath of office in 2017. “‘Just grab ‘em by the p—y,’ your president” the sign below read. Two American flags were hung upside down next to the Trump lookalike doll.

The McGrath campaign could not immediately be reached for comment.

McGrath narrowly won her primary over her progressive opponent Charles Booker. Nonpartisan Cook Political Report and Sabato’s Crystal Ball rate the Kentucky race as likely Republican, but McGrath has received an outpouring of donations from Democrats across the country looking to unseat the Senate majority leader and take back the majority.
