When you think of hemp, Mitch McConnell wants you to think of him. The notoriously hardline Republican Senate Majority Leader is pushing for re-election in November 2020, and he’s turning to marijuana’s non-intoxicating cousin to help him collect votes.

In a newly-released clip of campaign B-roll footage for use in Republican super PAC commercials, Senator McConnell can be seen standing in the middle of nondescript hemp farm, surrounded by small-scale farmers and big buds of CBD-rich hemp flower. The video was first spotted by the Washington Free Beacon and then highlighted by Tom Angell over at Forbes.
