Amy McGrath visits voters in Muhlenberg Co. on Friday

MUHLENBERG CO., Ky. (WFIE) - Kentucky Democratic senatorial candidate paid a visit to the Tri-State this weekend.

Amy McGrath spoke to voters in Muhlenberg County on Friday.

The former Marine Corps pilot flew herself into the Muhlenberg County Airport on Friday morning before meeting with local voters to discuss her new campaign platform - Mission: Rebuilding Kentucky.

Friday’s meet-and-greet style event shed light on the COVID-19 pandemic’s impact on the economy, healthcare and even voter turn out. She emphasized her message of planning for the future - focusing on infrastructure and education systems.

McGrath acknowledged this is an election year like no other, heightened by the ongoing pressure on the United States Postal Service.

“And I do think that it is a concern,” McGrath said. “The good news is, as I mentioned, we have a bipartisan agreement here in Kentucky to have mail-in balloting so everyone can vote during this election. It’s never been easier in Kentucky to vote than right here in 2020.”

McGrath went on to say she feels the USPS needs more resources at the federal level to provide a “true democracy” and to run a smooth election, which is nearly seven weeks away.

McGrath will go head-to-head with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell for a seat in the U.S. Senate on November 3.
