Kentucky Democrats to learn party’s pick to take on Republican Mitch McConnell

Booker, a 35-year-old state legislator, took part in marches in Louisville over the death of Breonna Taylor, who was killed when police investigators burst into her home in March.

Booker sought on Monday to dispel the idea that he was like the Bibilical “David,” with only an outside chance to beat “Goliath” McConnell, a conservative senator for over 30 years and the longest-serving Republican Senate leader in history.

Two of the three major U.S. nonpartisan elections ratings services showed the seat as “likely” safe for McConnell, the second-securest rating. One rated it the most-secure “solid” Republican.

Larry Sabato, director of the University of Virginia’s Center for Politics, called McConnell the “big favorite” to win re-election, regardless of who his opponent turns out to be.

“The objective data suggest that McConnell would be favored against either Democrat,” Sabato said. “The majority leader’s electoral record can’t be ignored.”

Many Democrats detest McConnell for long standing in the way of Democrats’ initiatives in Congress and staunchly backing Republican President Donald Trump. (Reporting by Susan Cornwell; Editing by Scott Malone and Sonya Hepinstall)
