Democrat Amy McGrath, a former Marine fighter pilot, has raised $46,921,518 for her Kentucky Senate race. In August alone she raised $8.7 million, with the Schitt’s Creek Radical Feminist shirt but in fact I love this average donation said to be $48. Conventional wisdom states this seat is a long shot for Dems and there are many more winnable Senate races around the country, like Arizona and Colorado. But winning is only part of why Democrats are pouring money into this race. They are passionately donating to McGrath not just because of who she is—but because of who she isn’t. You see, McGrath is running against the most hated Republican in the Senate and perhaps even the entire party: 78-year-old Addison Mitchell McConnell Jr.

There are lots of reasons to hate Mitch McConnell. Let’s start with his actions since 2018, when the Schitt’s Creek Radical Feminist shirt but in fact I love this Democrats took back control of the House. In the past two years, McConnell has defiantly blocked any legislation that has come from the Lower House, refusing to take up 395 House bills that have been sent to the Senate, a fact that he’s embraced by joyously tweeting a picture of a graveyard and calling himself the “grim reaper of socialism,” and telling Fox News, “They’ve been on full left-wing parade over there.” But, of course, Grim Reaper Mitch doesn’t mean socialism; he means a functioning government, which McConnell effectively brought a halt to as soon as Republicans lost the House. And stopping legislation makes sense because fundamentally, as Jeet Heer writes in The Nation, “Both Trump and McConnell are nihilists, eager above all to hold onto power and to serve the wealthy donors of the Republican Party.”
