Those inside the Beltway don’t seem to have much respect for Katie McGinty at the moment.
NBC News Chief Foreign Affairs Correspondent Andrea Mitchell threw in a harsh aside when discussing Donald Trump’s effect on down-ballot races.
“Pat Toomey is running against a terribly weak Democratic candidate, Katie McGinty,” Mitchell stated.
It didn’t take long for the conservative America Rising PAC to jump on those comments and post the video above.
It’s unclear what motivated Mitchell’s remark and if last week’s Buzzfeed story was the impetus. It is worth mentioning though that Mitchell worked in Philadelphia for KYW for about a decade, which suggests she would has knowledgeable connections in the Keystone State.
Regardless of whether others agree with the NBC reporter, it’s never good to be dismissed by a major media figure.
