McConnell gets nod from Fraternal Order of Police

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell has received the endorsement of the Kentucky Fraternal Order of Police in his bid for re-election to a sixth term.

Officers announced their decision Saturday at a state convention in Bowling Green.

County Sheriff Burl Purdue, who serves as president of the Fraternal Order of Police, said the dangers officers face are too serious not to have McConnell working on their behalf in Washington.

McConnell said he's humbled by the endorsement. And he pledged to continue working alongside police to protect Kentucky families.
