Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R) celebrates his 72nd birthday on Thursday.

His Democratic rival, Alison Lundergan Grimes, didn't let the occasion go unrecognized. In a release, Grimes' campaign questioned if this is the "worst birthday ever," and made a "special card" telling the Republican to "cheer up" on his birthday:


McConnell and Grimes have continually traded barbs in a race that recent polls show is in a dead heat. McConnell is also facing opposition from Republican Matt Bevin, who he'll face in a primary election on on May 20.

It was Bevin who received McConnell's attention on his birthday. The senator's campaign released a radio ad Thursday slamming "Matt 'Bailout' Bevin."
