Mitch McConnell’s long and winding road in Kentucky

Whitesburg, Kentucky — On a tight, winding mountain road in Eastern Kentucky, Mitch McConnell’s campaign bus inched slowly uphill, bearing forward at a constant speed past signs warning of falling rock and explosions from adjacent coal mines as bolder, faster drivers zoomed by. The Pine Mountain Grill here was the fourth stop on Day One of a two-day, 10-town McConnell coal bus tour last week. To chase the big blue “Team Mitch” bus from its previous destination for 45 miles on a narrow lane of US 119 — hugging the ground when near the mountainside and worrying about turns when edging the cliff — is to understand McConnell’s approach to what is shaping up to be one of the toughest races of the Republican leader’s 30-year Senate career.
