Toward the end of last week, sports radio program host Matt Jones confirmed that he is considering becoming a candidate against Senator Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and said he will make a final decision upon returning from a June vacation.
The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee leadership has been trying to convince 2018 congressional candidate and former Marine Corps combat helicopter pilot Amy McGrath to enter the race. She, too, has not yet committed to running. For his part, Mr. Jones says whether or not Ms. McGrath decides to run will not influence his own decision. In either case, Sen. McConnell will be rated as a clear favorite for re-election.
