It has been a rough 48 hours for former Marine Corps pilot Amy McGrath. Within hours of her campaign’s launch, McGrath has already taken to Twitter to reverse and apologize for an early gaffe.
“I know I disappointed many today with my initial answer on how I would have voted on Brett Kavanaugh,” McGrath said on Twitter. “I will make mistakes and always own up to them. The priority is defeating Mitch McConnell.”
Earlier on Wednesday, McGrath told reporters she would have voted to confirm Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. After strong backlash from Democrats and progressives, she later took to Twitter to reverse herself.
