WASHINGTON (WEHT) – U.S. Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell delivered floor remarks on Monday regarding the tornadoes that hit Kentucky this weekend.

McConnell said that he believes despite the destruction, Kentuckians will stay strong and will be able to recover.

“Hard-hit communities are receiving an outpouring of support from across the Commonwealth and the country,” said McConnell. “At every level of local, state, and federal government, across both parties, Kentucky’s leaders have come together to coordinate and provide aid.”

McConnell has said that he will visit the areas affected by the storm.
