Kentucky Democrats are apologizing (reluctantly?) for a local SuperPac, Progress Kentucky, that got caught on social media attacking the wife of a Republican senator, using her race as the bait.

Elaine Chao is a native of Taiwan and was secretary of labor for two terms under President George W. Bush. But according to some Kentucky Democrats looking to unseat her husband, Senator Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), Chao’s alledged favoritism to China while in the Bush cabinet “may explain why your job moved to China.” And we thought family attacks were off limits in the sensitive world of political progressivism . . .

More about Elaine Chao: like ConservativeBrand, she is a graduate of Mount Holyoke College; she also has an MBA from Harvard and currently is a distinguised fellow at the Heritage Foundation.
