Kentucky Dem tells voters she’s moderate; privately tells far-left donors the truth

A Kentucky Congressman in a 2018 midterm battleground congressional district has released a new ad featuring recorded audio of his opponent, at a Democratic fundraiser, claiming she is more progressive than "anybody in the state of Kentucky."

Rep. Andy Barr, R-Ky., sent his new ad in a tweet Monday morning, slamming his Democratic opponent, Amy McGrath, as "too liberal for Kentucky."

The ad features McGrath speaking at a Democratic fundraiser in Massachusetts, describing her political principles.

"I am further left, I'm more progressive, than anybody in the state of Kentucky," McGrath says.

McGrath, a Marine and former fighter pilot, has positioned herself in public as a more moderate Democrat who could win election in so-called Trump country. She claims to be a strong supporter of the Second Amendment, fiscally conservative, and an independent-minded Democrat who would not be a "puppet of the party."
