Kevin Smith Blasts Chuck Morse as “Mitch McConnell’s Guy” During Press Conference

Kevin Smith Blasts Chuck Morse as “Mitch McConnell’s Guy” During Press Conference Smith: “This election is about the 603 vs the 202, but he's now Mitch McConnell's guy."

Kevin Smith today blasted Chuck Morse as "Mitch McConnell’s guy" during a press conference that comes after a McConnell-aligned super PAC poured $4 million into the New Hampshire Republican primary in a desperate, last-ditch attempt to boost Morse’s struggling campaign. Smith attacked Morse for aligning with McConnell: "Chuck Morse couldn’t seal the deal with New Hampshire voters so he had to make a deal with Mitch McConnell to get over the finish line," adding, "This election is about the 603 vs the 202, but he's now Mitch McConnell's guy." Smith’s presser seemed to have struck a nerve with some of Morse’s top campaign aides – who called Smith "precious Mr. 3%" (referring to Smith’s polling numbers) who "can’t deal with losing statewide for a third time" and called his press conference "whiny." See below for the cringiest highlights:
