Amy McGrath makes public stop in Paducah, Ky.

PADUCAH, Ky. (KFVS) - Senate candidate Amy McGrath made a public stop in Paducah on Friday, July 24.

“And I’ve also been around Paducah today, talking to leaders, talking to people, finding out what is on their mind,” she said. “How are we all dealing with the coronavirus? What is it you want from a senator? What is it you need from the leaders in Washington right now? People are angry. People are upset. We have a lot of people out of work and we need leadership.”

This was her first visit to western Kentucky since securing the Democratic nomination in June.

She stopped to meet with Rev. Kempton D. Baldridge and tour Seamen’s Church Institute in Paducah.

Rev. Baldridge is the senior river chaplain for the Ministry on the Rivers and Gulf - Ohio River Region.

McGrath, a retired U.S. Marine Corps Colonel and Kentucky native, is running against U.S. Senator Mitch McConnell, who is seeing a sixth term.
