Many Americans know Kentucky Senator Mitch McConnell. Many residents in Elk Grove know Mayor Steve Ly.

McConnell is a man with great power in Washington DC as the Republican leader of the U.S. Senate and by default, an international power broker. Outside of the Elk Grove area and a few pockets of supporters in Fresno and Minneapolis, Ly is not that well known and as an individual politician, has limited influence.

Throughout his long career, Republican McConnell, with recent exceptions to accommodate President Trump’s support of Putin and Russia’s interference in American elections is a rock rib conservative. You know, a law and order, voter suppression, state right’s sort of guy.

And even thought he has not displayed many of the supposed characteristics in his comparatively short political career, Ly is reputed to be a liberal member of the Democratic party.

On the surface these two elected officials appear to be polar opposites. But they do share a few important characteristics.
