The Daily Kos had an interesting story about McConnell this morning:
The short version is that McConnell (along with Rand Paul) were the reason that the U.S lifted sanctions against Rusal, the aluminum company that plans to invest $200 million in a $1.7 billion aluminum plant in Kentucky. Rusal is partially owned by Oleg Deripaska, who is a Russian mobster.
Deripaska is the former employer of Trump's first campaign manager, Paul Manafort - and you are well aware of what happened to Manfort.
McConnell and governor Matt Bevin are planning to point to the aluminum plant as reasons they should get re-elected, but that might be tough.
Bevin is now the LEAST popular governor in the country.
Mitch McConnell's approval rating is now 38%, making him one of the least popular senators in the country.
