National Democratic Groups Increasing Attacks on McConnell

Democratic groups are increasing the pressure on Senator Mitch McConnell as he gears up for next year's re-election campaign, launching attacks that focus on McConnell's recent actions in the U.S. Senate. The Senate Majority PAC, run by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, has created a website called “Beltway Mitch,” targeting McConnell for his refusal to compromise on sequestration, and the effects of sequestration on school districts in Kentucky.

On top of that, the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee is criticizing McConnell's votes against the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act and other fair pay bill. 

The McConnell campaign did not respond to a request for comment.
