Mitch McConnell’s new challenger is having a rough go of it today. Here’s what happened:
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.”
Well this unleashed a bevy of hate from the left, who couldn’t believe she said this about Kavanaugh:
This is tone deaf and stupid. Dang. Whatever. https://t.co/TeVsuMf9CQ

That’s just a smidgen. You should the @ replies she’s getting inundated with. It’s more than I can count.
So about two hours ago from the time of this post McGrath decided to address her critics and flip flop on the issue:
I was asked earlier today about Judge Brett Kavanaugh and I answered based upon his qualifications to be on the Supreme Court. But upon further reflection and further understanding of his record, I would have voted no.

Now she says she’d vote NO on Kavanaugh after the Twitter mob ‘educated’ her. LOL! But apparently that wasn’t enough so she tweeted this one out less than an hour ago:
I know I disappointed many today with my initial answer on how I would have voted on Brett Kavanaugh. I will make mistakes and always own up to them. The priority is defeating Mitch McConnell.

If this was really true she would have owned up to the mistake she made comparing Trump to 9/11.
