“This morning Mitch McConnell said that if former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton ran for President, it would be like a re-run of the Golden Girls,” said Kentucky Democratic Party Chairman Dan Logsdon in a statement. “I can't believe it, I have always admired Hillary Clinton for all she has done. Not just for America, but for women worldwide. It's disgusting that Mitch McConnell would resort to these kind of petty attacks.”
Speaking to the 40th annual Conservative Political Action Conference on Friday, McConnell argued that rising GOP congressman such as Sens. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) and Rand Paul (R-Ky.) and Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) were evidence the Republican Party had a new wave of young conservative voices.
“Don’t tell me Democrats are the party of the future when their presidential ticket for 2016 is shaping up to look like a rerun of the 'Golden Girls,' " he said, apparently referencing Clinton and Vice President Biden.
Logsdon’s statement directs supporters to a website with an online petition demanding an apology from the senior Senator from Kentucky.
