McConnell Takes Heat From Home State Press

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) is still under the microscope from the Kentucky press over his office's involvement -- or non-involvement, according to the senator -- in attempts to discredit the family used by Democrats as a case example for expanding the children's health insurance program.

Facing reelection in a year, in a less-than-hospitable environment, McConnell probably isn't liking stories like these.

Naturally, the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee is lovin' it, blasting "in case you missed it" emails to reporters yesterday and today.
