Senate Majority Chief Mitch McConnell (R. KY) obtained the homecoming welcome he deserved when he took the stage at a Household Farms Picnic in Kentucky over the weekend.
As McConnell, whose present approval ranking in Kentucky is hovering round 18-20%, took the stage to stump for the reelection of Republican Governor Matt Bevin, he was drowned out by a refrain of boos that finally become chants of “Moscow Mitch!”
