Andy Barr was the clear winner of tonight’s debate, demonstrating a stark contrast between a record of results for Kentucky’s Sixth District over the liberal resistance agenda of Amy McGrath.
Tonight also showed why Kentucky voters have trusted Andy Barr to represent them in Congress. Andy talked about tax relief for working families, affordable and accessible health care — including protecting those with preexisting conditions, and growing our economy so we have better jobs at higher wages. In contrast, our opponent couldn’t win on the facts, so she launched personal attacks. She is the only candidate who name called tonight. She is the only candidate who showed rank partisanship. She is the only candidate who was ill-informed on issues critical to the people of Kentucky. Congressman Barr demonstrated his bipartisan leadership throughout the entire debate, while Amy McGrath demonstrated her bitter partisanship, which is the last thing we need in Congress.
