Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's Highlands area home was vandalized early Saturday morning.

Numerous messages were written on the home using red and white spray paint. The phrase "Where's my money" was tagged on the front door along with other messages on the porch. The message seems to be a response to the proposed $2,000 stimulus check increase that was blocked by Sen. McConnell in December.

The rest of McConnell's home was not damaged.

Louisville Metro Police Department say the incident happened around 5 a.m.

There are currently no suspects. The investigation is ongoing.

The Kentucky GOP released this statement condemning the vandalism:

“Vandalism is reprehensible and there’s no place in our politics for acts like this. Kentuckians deserve better and the Democrats should join us in condemning this act of vandalism.”

It was another cool, though overall pleasant day across the Tri-State - after only seeing temperatures dive as low as 22° early this morning, peak temperatures ended up climbing a few degrees higher than Thursday's; that being said, Evansville’s high temperature of 27° Was still 15° below average for this time of the year. As for the evening ahead, temperatures will gradually fall for 23° around dinner time back down to 19° by10 PM. A weak northerly wind flow most of the night paired with our crystal clear skies will cause temperatures to of fall back down into the mid to low teens once again - Evansville's anticipated low temperature of 12° will mark or coolest since the morning of January 7th.
