Unseating Mitch McConnell in this year’s midterms will be like freeing Europe from Hitler’s Nazi control, according to Kentucky’s Democratic speaker of the House.

McConnell’s campaign has already spoke out against Stumbo’s comments, and the Republican Party of Kentucky have called on Stumbo and Grimes to apologize. Kentucky’s lone Democratic U.S. representative John Yarmuth also took issue with Stumbo’s remarks, and said he personally “probably wouldn’t have said that.”
