Back in kentucky.... all eyes are on the u-s senate race.... between senate majority leader mitch mcconnell and his democratic challenger amy mcgrath.

Today..

Mcconnell held one of his final campaign rally's in woodford county.

He met with dozens of supporters at gaffney farm in versailles.

He was joined by his wife, transportation secretary elaine chao, congressman barr, state ag commissioner ryan quarles and other republican leaders hoping to send him back to washington for another six years.

Mcconnell says today and tomorrow are the two most important days for him because that's when most republicans will vote.

He says it's important he be re- elected so democrats don't change the makeup of the u-s senate and supreme court.

One supporter we spoke to says she's been most impressed with what he's been able to do with the judges.

L3: election 2020 white phyllis vincent supporter "i was very frustrated that these judges would try to make law when it's just an opinion they're allowed by constitution to render.

So i was extremely pleased with the amount of judges that he's gotten in and for that reason i'm voting for him wholeheartedly."

Some supporters we talked to say they've voted for mcconnell for most of their entire lives... and can't see anyone else in his seat, better to serve kentucky or the country.

If mcconnell wins tomorrow it would be his seventh victory since 19-84.

Both candidates... former marines.... spoke about leadership and serving kentuckians....rath er than what they say their opponents do...work for washington.

We talked to supporters there who say they're ready for a change in leadership.

"sue and stephen scheff: i think people want to work together and you just need some leaders that say 'hey, we can actually work together, we can do this' and i think that's what we have here today.

You know, with josh and with amy, that's what is going to happen.

They're going to work across the aisle, they're going to do whatever it takes."
