WATCH: Mitch McConnell Defends Endorsing Candidate Accused Of Domestic Violence: “Every Candidate Has Flaws”

What do you do when serious issues arise around your candidate? For example, if he’s polling well, and supports your agenda, but on the other hand, has a reported history of domestic violence and threatening shootouts with police — is it time to throw your support behind a candidate that better fits your party’s purported values, or to make excuses?

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell has answered the question, at least for himself.

In the clip below, you can watch how he handles being asked about supporting Herschel Walker (R-GA) for the U.S. Senate, when Walker is accused of pointing a firearm at his ex-wife’s head and threatening to “blow [her] f***ing brains out,” among other things.

“He admitted he had some troubles in his life. He’s been an exemplary citizen in recent years, he’s a hero in Georgia. Almost every candidate has had trouble…I think Walker is completely electable…every candidate has flaws and assets, and this candidate has a lot of assets, and he’s very competitive, and has a great chance of winning.”

As 11Alive reports, it’s not just that one accusation from an ex-wife, either — Walker also (according to police reports) threatened to “have a shootout” with police who were investigating after a domestic dispute in which he threatened to blow a woman’s head off.

Still, he’s been endorsed by both Donald Trump and Mitch McConnell, and as McConnell himself admits, he’ll stand by the endorsement because he believes that Walker has a good chance of winning — regardless of his history.
