Project Veritas exposed in a video published Wednesday how Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s (KY) Democratic opponent Amy McGrath is allegedly deceiving Republican voters to win them over in November.
“It’s kind of the bottom line and I think from there, a lot of people have turned that into like she supports Trump or like she supports the wall or whatever. It is not true.”
“There’s been a lot of misleading stuff around that,” said McGrath Field Organizer Abby Cox. “It’s kind of the bottom line and I think from there, a lot of people have turned that into like she supports Trump or like she supports the wall or whatever. It is not true.”
She added, “I don’t agree with this personally, but I think some of the communications people on our campaign are fine with, they’re like ‘oh, some Republicans think that she supports those things and that makes them vote for her. Like, we’ll take it.”
McGrath has said on many occasions that she will reach across the aisle and will work alongside any president, regardless of his or her party affiliation.
However, Cox said McGrath’s appeal to Republican voters is suspect, explaining it as “it’s not that she supports him [Trump], but, you know, in order to do this thing we’re trying to do that’s sorta what’s required.”

Rep. Patrick McHenry Announces Retirement, Adding to Congressional Exodus
Rep. Patrick McHenry, R-N.C., has declared that he will not seek re-election, becoming the latest in a growing list of lawmakers departing from Congress. McHenry, a close ally of former House Speaker Kevin McCarthy, stated that he believes “there is a season for everything,” signaling the end of his tenure in the House. Having served since 2005, McHenry is the 37th member of Congress to announce they won’t seek re-election in 2024.
In a statement, McHenry reflected on the significance of the House of Representatives in the American political landscape, calling it the “center of our American republic.” He acknowledged the concerns about the future of the institution due to multiple departures but expressed confidence that new leaders would emerge and guide the House through its next phase.
The departure of McHenry and others comes against the backdrop of political shifts and challenges within the Republican Party. The GOP has faced setbacks in recent elections, including fallout from the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade.
Internal strife and disagreements, exemplified by the rebellion against McCarthy, have characterized the party’s dynamics. The GOP’s approval rating stands at 30%, with a disapproval rating of 66%, reflecting the challenges and divisions within the party.
As McHenry steps aside, questions loom over the fate of open seats in the upcoming election. The nonpartisan Cook Political Report identifies five open House seats as potential Democrat pickup opportunities, while none are listed for the GOP. The departures raise concerns about the party’s unity and ability to navigate the evolving political landscape.
With a total of 20 departing Democratic legislators and 10 Republicans, the changing composition of Congress adds complexity to the political dynamics leading up to the 2024 elections. As McHenry emphasizes a hopeful view of the House’s future, the evolving political landscape will determine the impact of these departures on the balance of power in Congress.
