As Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) cast his vote in the midterm elections on Tuesday, a voter in a nearby booth cast a not-so-secret ballot: A big thumbs down.

Getty photographer Aaron P. Bernstein captured the photobomb moment at a polling station in Louisville, Kentucky, where McConnell is in a race to save his Senate seat.

McConnell’s Democratic opponent, Alison Lundergan Grimes, reportedly tweeted the image before later deleting it. Grimes would be Kentucky’s first female senator, as Mashable reports, but polls indicate McConnell is ahead of Grimes with a 98 percent chance of winning, according to a forecast by FiveThirtyEight.

The unnamed voter wasn’t the first constituent to publicly denounce the senator in recent months. In October, McConnell and his wife were dining at a Cuban restaurant in Louisville when protesters told him to “leave the entire country alone.” Protesters also recently confronted him in an airport and forced him from a restaurant by blasting Public Enemy’s “Fight the Power.”
