McConnell brushes off question about special treatment from Chao

Mitch McConnell brushes off questions about special treatmentSenate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) dismissed a question on Tuesday about whether he received  preferential treatment by the Transportation Department, which is  overseen by his wife Secretary Elaine Chao.

McConnell,  asked if he got “any special treatment or consideration” when his  office applied for department grants, quipped that he had been  “complaining” to Chao about why more projects in Kentucky didn’t get  federal money.

“You know, I was complaining  to her just last night, 169 projects and Kentucky got only five. I hope  we’ll do a lot better next year,” McConnell told reporters.
