A top-tier Democratic candidate for Congress, in a seat her party must be competitive in to retake the House this fall has stumbled. Big time.

Democrat Amy McGrath – running in Kentucky’s 6th Congressional District – compared President Trump’s victory over Hillary Clinton to the terror attacks of September 11, 2001.

 McGrath, who just recently won her primary in Kentucky’s 6th district, said in November that after Trump’s win she felt the same “sinking feeling” that she had after learning of the 9/11 attacks.

“And then, of course, the results of the election, we have a new commander-in-chief,” McGrath said during an event by Indivisible Bourbon County. “And that morning I woke up like somebody had sucker punched me. I mean, I felt like, ‘what has just happened to my country?’”

“The only feeling I can describe that’s any close to it was the feeling I had after 9/11. ‘What just happened, where are we going from here,’ and it was that just sinking feeling of sadness, and I didn’t know what to do,” she continued.

2,977 Americans were killed on September 11, 2001, when terrorists hijacked airplanes and flew them into the World Trade Center and the Pentagon. Another plane was headed toward Washington, D.C., before the passengers attacked the cockpit, causing the plane to crash in a field in Pennsylvania.

McGrath is running in a district that, despite being relatively liberal for Kentucky, still went for Donald Trump by nearly 20 percentage points and has a partisan voter index of Republican +9. Good luck with that!
