KDP Sells $70K Worth of “Moscow Mitch” Merch in 24 hours

On Thursday, the Kentucky Democratic Party announced that after launching their “Moscow Mitch” webstore Wednesday afternoon, they have sold $70,000 in merchandise with more than 2,200 unique orders placed — accomplishing in 24 hours what Team Mitch took two weeks to do.

According to the Courier-Journal, in early May McConnell’s campaign reported $30,000 from 1,000 orders for their “Cocaine Mitch” web store in the first 24 hours. Two weeks later The Hill reported the campaign had reached $70,000 in total sales during their two-week campaign.

The Kentucky Democratic Party smashed McConnell’s single-day benchmark in just 8 hours.

“Moscow Mitch” merchandise was ordered from all 50 states plus the District of Columbia. Kentuckians responded enthusiastically to the campaign with merchandise being ordered from 64 different counties across the Commonwealth.

“This campaign has really caught the imagination of voters in Kentucky and across the country for obvious reasons,” Kentucky Democratic Party spokesperson Marisa McNee said. “At a time when election security is on the minds of top law enforcement and national security experts, Mitch McConnell alone stands in the way of important bipartisan legislation. People are sick of it, and this is their way of expressing their outrage.”

Due to popular demand, more items are being added to the webstore today, which you can view here.
