Despite the fact that Russia unleashed a concentrated effort to influence the 2016 United States presidential election in favor of President Donald Trump, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (D-KY) refused to bring two election security bills passed by the House of Representatives to the Senate floor for a vote.

McGrath announced her candidacy with a campaign ad that is garnering attention in her home state and nationwide. In it, the decorated Marine begins by calling out McConnell for not responding to the letters of his constituents, including one a 13 year-old McGrath wrote.
