Mitch McConnell campaign tweets image of tombstone with opponent's name

Aug 05, 2019 - Politico

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's campaign tweeted out a photo of satirical tombstones over the weekend, including one featuring an election opponent's name, hours after the mass shooting in El Paso, Texas, that claimed the lives of 22 people.

The tombstones named Amy McGrath, his main Democratic opponent in the 2020 Senate race for Kentucky, as well as Judge Merrick Garland, whose nomination to the Supreme Court he blocked during the last year of Barack Obama's presidency.
