McGrath Campaigns at Ice Cream Meet-and-Greet in Florence

Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Amy McGrath made stops in Northern Kentucky in recent days, looking to rally support in her effort to unseat Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

Polls have shown both a relatively close and distant race between the two, but with McConnell leading in each one.

In an appearance at Fillmore's Dairy Hut, where McGrath, a Northern Kentucky native, hosted an ice cream meet and greet, the candidate spoke of the need to save the postal service, to expand affordable health care, enabling students to succeed, among other issues.

McGrath and McConnell are expected to participate in a televised debate hosted by Gray Television and the University of Kentucky student government in a couple weeks.
