EXCLUSIVE: Sen. McConnell says election will be held Nov. 3

BOWLING GREEN, Ky.- In an exclusive interview with WNKY News, Sen. Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said the general election will still take place Nov. 3.

On Thursday, President Trump floated the idea of moving the election to another date due to his concerns over mail-in ballots.

“Never in the history of this country, through wars, depressions and the Civil War, have we ever not had a federally scheduled election on time,” McConell told WNKY’s Max Winitz. “We will find a way to do that again this November 3rd. We will cope with whatever the situation is and have the election on November 3rd as already scheduled.”

“So just to be clear, you are saying November 3rd is set in stone,” Winitz replied.

“That’s right. We will cope with whatever the situation is and have the election on November 3rd as already scheduled,” McConnell said.
