Retired US Marine Corps Lt. Col. Amy McGrath launches her campaign for Kentucky’s Sixth Congressional district in the most effective way possible, in a video ad entitled, “This is my new mission.”
McGrath is the “first woman Marine to flight an F-18 in combat.” She is running to unseat incumbent Andy Barr, who the ad labels as “Mitch McConnell’s hand-picked congressman who said he would vote enthusiastically to take health care away from over a quarter million Kentuckians.”
Her new ad also caught the attention of MSNBC’s Morning Joe co-host Joe Scarborough, who played the entire ad to close out his show.
McGrath couldn’t have asked for a better promo to launch her campaign than Joe Scarborough playing her video. It would have cost her a hefty sum of money in commercial TV rates to air the ad.
