If we're lucky, Kentucky Secretary of State Alison Lundergran Grimes (D) will unseat Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY). It's been a close race, which (thankfully) does not bode well for Mitch McConnell, plus there's this from The Hill:
The Senate Conservatives Fund (SCF) spent nearly half of its independent expenditures last year to boost Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell's (R-Ky.) primary challenger... The SCF also spent nearly $536,000 in independent expenditures backing Bevin, largely on ads attacking McConnell.
Now the Grimes campaign has released a statement that neener-nanners a few of those same highlights from Mitch's terrible, horrible, no good, very bad year. Via TPM:
Less than 72 hours into the New Year, Mitch McConnell’s campaign has already managed to stumble out of the gate. McConnell lost significant ground with Kentucky Republicans, as the Daviess County GOP Chair refused to back the 30-year incumbent over Tea Party challenger Matt Bevin. In yet another sign of Senator Gridlock’s horrible start to 2014, the Senate Conservatives Fund announced spending $1 million to date to unseat McConnell. Senator Gridlock’s failure to connect with Kentuckians underscores the Commonwealth’s overwhelming desire for a new senator in the New Year.
Yep, that about sums it up.
And don't even get me started on his politics.
