    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and his Democratic Challenger Amy McGrath went head-to-head in their only debate of the election cycle. McGrath strongly criticized McConnell's handling of the various crises facing the country and for prioritizing judicial nominations over helping everyday Kentuckians struggling to get by during these challenging times, saying "Senator, you've been there for 36 years. How's it looking Kentucky?" McConnell shot back by saying "I think her [McGrath's] entire campaign is: she's a Marine, she's a mom and I've been there too long."
