McGrath, who was the first woman to fly a combat mission for the Marine Corps, as well as the first to pilot the F/A-18 on a combat mission, particularly focused on small business owners at a stop in Williamsburg in Whitley County, promising to work for their issues and problems in Washington and not favor out-of-state corporations.

McGrath and McConnell meet in the Nov. 3 general election.
