John Yarmuth, the only Democrat to Federal office from the state of Kentucky, hinted on Thursday that McGrath, a Navy combat Aviator, perhaps not the best candidate to take down Senate majority Leader Mitch McConnell, is washed in the next year, a number of unabgesprochene error already in your campaign in the first two days.

“I listened to all belong. I don’t think it was anything, and I’m not a lawyer or a senator on the Judiciary Committee, so I know the criteria,” McGrath offered. “But I was very worried about the judge Kavanaugh, what I felt, were the extreme right-wing attitudes that he had. However, there was nothing in his records that I would think would disqualify him in any way. And the fact is, if you are the President and the Senate, that is our system and I don’t think there was anything that would have disqualified him in my mind.”

Although McGrath named Christine Blasey Ford believe the allegations of sexual misconduct by Kavanaugh in high school, “worthy”, it has confirmed that you don’t see it as “eliminating the end.”


“Well, I mean, I think again, I find it credible, but given the time that elapsed between and from a judicial point of view, I don’t think it would be really disqualify him,” McGrath said.

“I was asked today about the judge, Brett Kavanaugh, and I answered, on the basis of his qualifications to be on the Supreme court. But after further reflection and understanding of his record company, I would have voted “no”,” McGrath wrote.
