Senator Mitch McConnell makes stops in northern Kentucky
FLORENCE, Ky. (WKRC) -- This is the first race in recent memory that incumbent Republican Mitch McConnell is facing a serious primary challenge and he's fighting hard for votes.
McConnell got a warm welcome Monday afternoon from members of the Florence Rotary Club. The May 20th primary against Matt Bevin comes first but when he spoke Monday Senator McConnell focused on President Obama.
He talked about familiar Republican themes including big government and excess government regulation.
"So President Obama had the choice of moving to the political center after the 2010 election. He chose not to do that, he basically has doubled down on the left and decided to try to achieve what he couldn't get through Congress," McConnell said.
After his visit to Florence McConnell also spoke to voters in Carrollton Monday afternoon. McConnell reports his campaigning raised 2.4 million dollars in the first three months of this year.
