McConnell uses tombstones in campaign ad

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s campaign tweeted out a photo of satirical tombstones over the weekend, including one featuring an election opponent’s name, hours after the mass shooting in El Paso, Texas, that claimed the lives of 22 people.

The tombstones named Amy McGrath, his main Democratic opponent in the 2020 Senate race for Kentucky, as well as Judge Merrick Garland, whose nomination to the Supreme Court he blocked during the last year of Barack Obama’s presidency.

The grave markers also identified concepts the senator has decried, such as socialism and the Green New Deal. The campaign’s tweet labeled McConnell the “Grim Reaper of Socialism” and shows the tombstones at the Fancy Farm picnic, a local Kentucky Catholic fundraising event.
