National Democratic Groups Increasing Attacks on McConnell
Two national Democratic groups are ramping up their fight against Senator Mitch McConnell's re-election efforts.
The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee is targeting McConnell for his votes against the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act and the Violence against Women Act.
And the Senate Majority PAC, run by Majority Leader Harry Reid, has launched a website about McConnell, who they call Beltway Mitch. It criticizes McConnell for his refusal to compromise on sequestration. The website notes sequestration is costing many public school districts in Kentucky.
The McConnell campaign did not respond to a request for comment.
