After losing in this past November's midterm election for the House, former fighter pilot Amy McGrath, a Kentucky Democrat, is being propped up by fundraising groups to take on Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., in 2020, according to The Hill.

"There is incredible grassroots energy for Amy McGrath to run against Mitch McConnell," Executive Director of the Ditch Fund and its Ditch Mitch project Ryan Aquilina emailed The Hill. "We had one of our best days ever in terms of fundraising, and that proves in no uncertain terms just how much appetite there is for Amy to run and to defeat Mitch McConnell."

McGrath was well-funded in her loss to Rep. Andy Barr, R-Ky., this November and if she decides to run, it will be a tall order against the leader of the Senate.

The fundraising has come from all 50 states in its first 24 hours, according to the report.

There might be an opening to defeat the Senate leader in Kentucky; however, as Sen. McConnell is the third most unpopular senator in the United States, according to the Morning Consult's January poll, The Hill reported.
