It looks like Democrats think that is the case;
The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee has gone dark in Kentucky, where the party is targeting Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell.After a significant investment in support of Kentucky Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes, the DSCC had not reserved time for the final three weeks of the race and, as of today, is no longer on the air.“The DSCC has now spent more than 2 million in Kentucky and continues to make targeted investments in the ground game while monitoring the race for future investments, but is currently not on the air in the state,” a DSCC official told CQ Roll Call.
I'm not a big fan of Mitch McConnell, but he's definitely better than the alternative. But here's the thing about this - McConnell was never going to lose and it was good to see the Democrats
spending wasting money in the state. It means those funds don't get diverted to Iowa or Colorado or some other toss-up state.
That's the dark cloud to go with the silver lining I guess.
