"Mitch McConnell is dodging debates, he's dodging the people of Kentucky, and he's dodging journalists. Kentuckians deserve to know...where's Mitch?" Bevin spokesman spokeswoman Rachel Semmel said in a statement.

The Courier-Journal of Louisville also published a new editorial criticizing McConnell's staff from keeping Sonka out of the press event.
