  McGrath faces strong headwinds in mission to oust McConnell LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Amy McGrath was in elementary school when Mitch McConnell was first elected to the Senate. Now, 36 years later, the Democrat who reached her dreams of becoming a military aviator has set her sights on a mission no one else has achieved — ending the Republican leader's career. The retired Marine combat pilot will have to overcome strong headwinds to deny McConnell a seventh term. While many Republican Senate candidates are scrambling to distance themselves from President Donald Trump, McConnell appears to be benefiting from his key role in executing the president's agenda.

Mitch McConnell asserted Thursday that he is healthy after speculation swirled over what is wrong with the Senate majority leader's hands.

McConnell showed up to work at the Capitol Thursday with both hands appearing severely discolored in a deep purple, with band-aids covering some of the knuckle areas.

The Kentucky Republican's lips and the areas surrounding his mouth were also discolored, which some were quick to point out looked like bruising.

'But I'm serious, is there anything going on we should know about?' a reporter asked McConnell Thursday regarding his health in an off-camera interaction.

GOP senators try to further distance themselves from Trump, but it may be too late to save their majority

  GOP senators try to further distance themselves from Trump, but it may be too late to save their majority One GOP strategist called the political environment "very difficult" for Republicans due to Trump's tweets and his widely panned debate performance.McConnell speculated last week about the time period after Judge Amy Coney Barrett's expected confirmation later this month when the GOP might face 2021 fight against possible Democratic efforts to "pack the court" with more justices should former Vice President Joe Biden win the White House.

People on social media are theorizing that McConnell has contracted COVID-19 after a serious outbreak at the White House occurred earlier this month. Others claim he is taking blood thinners or has some other health issue.

The 'super spreader' event that caused the outbreak among Trump's inner circle likely happened during the president's large Rose Garden event announcing Barrett as his nominee at the end of September.

The focus on McConnell's health also comes as the Senate majority leader plans to hold a floor vote Monday on confirming Trump's Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett.

In his exchange with the reporter at the Capitol, McConnell mentioned again the timing of the final confirmation vote for Barrett, claiming it would take place 'probably Monday evening, early.'

McConnell will bring the Barrett nomination, which was moved out of the Judiciary Committee earlier Thursday when Chairman Lindsey Graham went forward with the proceedings, to the floor of the Senate on Friday.

Not a single Democrat of the 10 on the panel showed up for the committee vote, instead protesting the confirmation by boycotting and holding a press conference outside the Capitol immediately following the vote.

There is little Democrats can do to stop Barrett's confirmation from making it through the Senate next week, as Republicans could lose one more member and still have Vice President Mike Pence to break the tie.
