LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) – Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell used the Kentucky GOP's annual Lincoln Day dinner in Louisville as a chance to send a message to voters.

The Republican party celebrated its electoral gains at the event last night.

That's where McConnell spoke about the challenges of governing.

He said, "But the process along the way is often times pretty challenging because we come from all over the country. We have very different points of view, even within the Republican conference, not to mention the Democrats. So a lot of people look at all of that and find it frustrating, messy. Well welcome to the democratic process."

This comes as President Trump has taken McConnell to task in recent days for his handling of the failed vote to repeal parts of the Affordable Care Act.
