Sen. McConnell discusses federal COVID-19 relief, vaccine distribution in Owensboro

OWENSBORO, Ky. (WFIE) - U.S. Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell was in Owensboro Thursday morning.

He discussed Kentucky’s vaccine distribution efforts and the multiple COVID-19 relief bills passed last year that are now law.

“We tried to tackle it on every front, but clearly we knew in the beginning that the only way we’d get past this, was with an effective vaccine as rapidly as possible,” said Senator McConnell.

We had a crew in Owensboro and reporter Katie Tercek will have the senator’s full recap tonight on 14 News.
