FILE - This March 5, 2014 file photo shows Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell of Ky., accompanied by Sen. John Barrasso, R-Wyo., speaking to reporters on Capitol Hill in Washington. The senate minority leader was raised in Louisville, got his B.A. there, and by most accounts is a rabid Cardinals fan. But he got his law degree from Kentucky. AP's intrepid congressional reporter, Donna Cassata, tried to get him on the record last year about which team he backs. She looked on helplessly Tuesday as McConnell _ who was in the middle of a back-and-forth with reporters about the Ukraine _ sidestepped the question yet again, ahead of Friday night's Louisville-Kentucky clash at the Sweet 16 in Indianapolis.
