LOUISVILLE – Team Mitch today released the following statement and background information regarding Alison Lundergan Grimes’ claims that she would address the Obama EPA regulations and demand action at her fundraiser with Harry Reid on Thursday.
"When Kentuckians expressed outrage that Alison Lundergan Grimes was hobnobbing with the likes of Harry 'coal makes us sick' Reid, she promised that she would use the opportunity to demand action for coal,” said Team Mitch spokeswoman Allison Moore. “A day after Harry Reid fills her campaign coffers with anti-coal cash, Kentuckians deserve to know what she said to support Kentucky coal during the fundraiser."
Politico: “’Alison is absolutely livid about the new rule and plans to use the event to share the stories of how Kentuckians are hurting and demand that the Senate take action to invest in clean coal technology,’ said Grimes spokeswoman Charly Norton.” (Burgess Everett, “Alison Lundergan Grimes to hold D.C. fundraiser with Harry Reid,” Politico, 6/4/14)
