McConnell Gets a Challenger

Kentucky’s most popular sports radio host is apparently targeting GOP Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, and hoping to add to his defeat in his likely upcoming election.

Kentucky Sports Radio host Matt Jones is an unabashed, out and proud left-winger and has set himself up as Mitch McConnell’s antagonist openly announcing that he will work to defeat McConnell if the Senator decides to run for office again in 2020, Politico reported in an extensive March 26 review.

Jones is particularly piqued by the fact that McConnell won’t pick a particular college basketball team to support. The Majority Leader holds degrees from both the University of Kentucky and the University of Louisville. Yet, McConnell has refused to play favorites between the two, insisting he supports both.

Indeed, in a recent call to Jones’ radio show, McConnell said, “It is OK — I know it’s probably not acceptable to you, as an Obama enthusiast — but it’s OK to be for both Louisville and Kentucky.”
