Democrat Amy McGrath will take on Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell for his Kentucky Senate seat in November after Charles Booker waged a closer-than-expected primary challenge from the Left.

Booker’s 39,407-vote lead on McGrath in Kentucky’s urban centers of Louisville and Lexington were not enough to overcome the centrist former Marine fighter pilot’s rural advantage. The Associated Press called the race Tuesday nearly a week after polls closed in Kentucky.

The article goes on to state the following:

McGrath, 45, was the early favorite in the race to represent Kentucky in the Senate, earning establishment support from the likes of the Senate Democrats’ campaign arm and raising $41 million over the course of her bid.

McConnell has held the Kentucky Senate seat since 1989. McGrath is now seeking to oust him from office. After her primary win was announced, she released the following statement in a series of Twitter posts:

I’m humbled that KY Democrats have nominated me to take on Mitch McConnell in November, and I can’t wait to get started to send him into retirement. Thank you to this team. Without you, we wouldn’t be getting ready to give Mitch the fight of his political life.

Thank you to every candidate who stepped up to run in this race.
Like so many, I am inspired by the powerful movement Charles Booker built to fight systemic racism and injustice and rightfully demand long-overdue action and accountability from our government & institutions.

I commend Mike Broihier, who has served his community & country in so many ways & was dedicated to representing every Kentuckian. I am proud to have been in this race with these candidates. I look forward to seeking their help, guidance and advice for the fight ahead of us.

Our system isn’t working for everyday Kentuckians, and we need officials who have the courage to meaningfully tackle the legal, educational and health inequities that continue to prevent true racial and socio-economic equality. That’s the kind of senator I intend to be.

As a woman in the military, I learned quickly that I’d have to fight the establishment to succeed. That’s what is needed to end the grip of special interests on our government and achieve equal pay, equal justice, affordable health care for all, & voting right protections.

First, we have to remove Sen. McConnell from office. The only way to overcome these odds is by building something bigger than just one candidate. I will work hard to earn the trust and support of all Kentuckians, including those who voted for someone else last week.

There is far too much at stake, and it’s on all of us to fight for it.
Last November, Kentuckians didn’t hesitate to replace an incompetent and unpopular incumbent. This November, we’re going to do it again. Now, let’s go win this thing.
