Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell has received the endorsement of the Kentucky Federation of College Republicans.
The group's central committee voted unanimously to support McConnell at a retreat in Elizabethtown last weekend.
Chairman Wesley Scott says that McConnell has fought for Kentucky values during five terms in the Senate and he's confident McConnell will continue to do so.
McConnell is seeking re-election to a sixth term next year. McConnell says he's grateful for the support from the college Republicans who play an influential role in Kentucky politics.
