Amy McGrath, a former Marine Corps fighter pilot, won the amazing close battle of the Democratic Senate of Kentucky.
Due to the proliferation of absentee votes caused by the coronavirus pandemic, McGrath nearly defeated State Rep. Charles Booker to the finish line, which caused the previous Booker to soar thousands of votes in the polls.
Booker is a progressive and openly supports “National Health Insurance”. In Louisville, Kentucky, Booker rose after the death of a 26-year-old black woman, Breonna Taylor.
Taylor was killed in the tattered home of the police on March 13 when the police used a non-explosive warrant to enter the site. The protesters took to the streets of Louisville and demanded that their killing be brought to justice.
Black Booker actively participated in the protests, which reflected incidents of protests against police injustices across the country.
His involvement attracted the attention of some prominent progressives, including Senators Elizabeth Warren (Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass) and Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), everyone agrees.
Meanwhile, McGrath has been a long-time favorite nominated by the party before the protests, and with the support of Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY), she raised a staggering 4,110 during the Senate campaign Ten thousand U.S. dollars.
As his gradual endorsement brought fund-raising activities, Booker beat McGrath because he was absent during the protest.
McGrath struggled to explain why she had not been to any protests in her area in the final initial debate, stuttered a little, and said that she did not do so because she was with her family. She continued to cite the coronavirus pandemic as a reason to avoid the crowd.
With Booker’s efforts, McGrath will now personally serve as the Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky).
