Senator Catherine Cortez Masto, Chair of the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, issued the following endorsement of decorated fighter pilot Amy McGrath in the Kentucky U.S. Senate race:
“Amy McGrath is a courageous leader who has spent her career taking risks and inspiring others to service. In the Senate, she’ll be a champion for all Kentuckians, working to expand access to high-quality, affordable health care and education, and to invest in good paying jobs in communities across Kentucky. Instead of playing politics and doing the bidding of special interests, Amy will make sure that Kentuckians get the fair shot they deserve.”
Amy McGrath is a 20-year veteran of the U.S. Marine Corps, who flew 89 combat missions in Iraq and Afghanistan, and a national security expert who served as an instructor at the U.S. Naval Academy. She’s running for Senate to take on Washington’s corruption and put Kentuckians first. Since announcing her candidacy last summer, Amy has been endorsed by VoteVets, and her campaign for Senate has raised a historic $17 million.
