For second day in a row, protesters rally outside McConnell appearance in Kentucky

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The plan to repeal Obamacare is one reason some are not happy with Kentucky's senior senator, Mitch McConnell.

For the second day in a row, demonstrators picketed outside an appearance by McConnell. They say they don't like the Senate Majority Leader's support of President Donald Trump's policies and claim he is not responsive to his constituents.

During his speech to the Jeffersontown Chamber of Commerce on Wednesday, McConnell acknowledged the protesters.

"Wherever they may be from, we welcome them," McConnell said. "I assume most of them are from Kentucky. Let me suggest to you what they're protesting. They're sorry they lost the election."

During his speech, McConnell said President Trump's agenda of cutting taxes and regulations will grow the economy and help Kentucky.

President Trump won all but two of Kentucky's counties in the election. Jefferson County was one of them.
