U.S. Senator Mitch McConnell of Kentucky reacted Tuesday to news that the United States Olympic Team is using uniforms made in China.

Senator McConnell said the Olympic Committee should have looked to the Bluegrass State for help.

"I've got a perfect solution," said Senator McConnell.  "We've got Campbellsville Apparel in Kentucky would be happy to make the uniform.  We've got another company in Olive Hill.  They'd be happy to make the uniforms.  All we need is a phone call and we'll send those Olympic uniforms right to them made in Kentucky.  Thank you very much."

On an unrelated topic, Senator McConnell had very little to say about calls for Mitt Romney to release more of his tax returns.

When asked, Senator McConnell said he will let the Romney campaign speak for itself.
