LOUISVILLE, KY. (WDRB) -- Conservatives are firing back at a liberal group in Kentucky for tweeting about the ethnicity of Senator Mitch McConnell's wife.
Progress Kentucky tweeted: "This woman has the ear of @McConnellPress - she's his #wife." "May explain why your job moved to #China!"
Progress Kentucky says the group wasn't being racist, it simply wanted to highlight McConnell's jobs record.
McConnell's wife Elaine Chao was the former Labor Secretary and the first female Asian-American to hold a cabinet post.
McConnell's campaign manager says is it unacceptable to use "race-baiting" for political gain.
