LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) -- Kentucky Sen. Mitch McConnell says fellow Republican John McCain should run against the "do-nothing" Congress being led by Democrats.
McConnell, the top-ranking Senate Republican, said in an interview Thursday that Congress deserves its low public approval rating. The four-term senator says the current Congress has been the "least accomplished" of any since his time in Washington.
McConnell made the comments in a phone interview from the Republican National Convention in Minnesota where McCain was to accept the presidential nomination.
His criticism of Congress brought a sharp response from Democrats. A spokesman for the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee says McConnell has been a key impediment to bringing change to the country.
