Boo birds, supporters greet McConnell

Hundreds of protesters gathered here Tuesday afternoon to shout their displeasure at Sen. Mitch McConnell, who was in town to speak at the Andeson County Chamber of Commerce luncheon.

McConnell’s motorcade blew past the large crowd gathered in the American Legion park, and later ignored questions from protesters who managed to get tickets into the sold-out luncheon.
