Amy McGrath in Conversation with Jennifer Rubin
- August 4, 2021
The author of Honor Bound speaks virtually on Fri., Aug. 6th, at 7 p.m. (EDT)!
She vividly recounts her experiences flying in the Marines, and her combat deployments to Iraq (Kuwait) and Afghanistan, her work as an Air Combat Tactics instructor — and what it was like to finally fly that fighter jet: high-speed, intense, and physically demanding.
Here is McGrath, training to do the most intense tactical flying there is (think the Navy's TOPGUN); meeting the man who would become her husband; being promoted to major and then lieutenant colonel; marrying, having three children, a career and life in Washington and then moving her family back to Kentucky to begin a whole new chapter in politics; her roller-coaster congressional campaign (she lost by three percentage points); and making the tough decision to run again, in an even bigger, higher-stakes national campaign, against the five-term leader of the U.S. Senate, Mitch McConnell.
McGrath will be in conversation with Jennifer Rubin of the Washington Post. She covers politics and policy, foreign and domestic, and provides insight into the conservative movement, the Republican and Democratic parties, and threats to Western democracies. She is the author of Resistance: How Women Saved Democracy from Donald Trump, coming in September. Rubin is also an MSNBC contributor and frequent guest on syndicated radio programs.
