AUDIO: KY Democrat Candidate Mocks State, Says She’s Too Progressive

At a Massachusetts fundraiser, the Kentucky Democrat joked about the coal mining industry and labeled herself as "further left" than anyone in the state.

A new ad released by Rep. Andy Barr (R-KY) on Monday includes audio of his opponent, Democrat Amy McGrath, placing herself on the far-left of the political spectrum and mocking the state’s coal industry at a campaign fundraiser in Massachusetts.

“I am further left. I’m more progressive than anybody in the state of Kentucky,” she told donors.

In another instance, she trashed the museum dedicated to coal miners. “The national coal mining museum is solar powered,” she chuckled. Attendees at the liberal fundraiser cackled at the comment.

She then told the Massachusetts donors that “it’s not necessarily about Kentucky.” The audio does not make clear to what “it” in the sentence refers.

The ad declares McGrath “too liberal for Kentucky.”
