Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has been losing his popularity since announcing he would not be holding a fair impeachment trial and now his seat in the Senate is in question.

“Democratic candidates Amy McGrath and Mike Broihier each said they filed paperwork Friday to run for the seat currently held by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, Kentucky Republican,” the Washington Times reported Saturday.

Both candidates, former Marines, took to Twitter on Saturday to announce their run for Senate.

McConnell’s poll numbers in Kentucky have cratered since he attached himself to Trump, with a recent poll showing only 37% of voters planning to reelect him.
