LEXINGTON – Team Mitch today released the following rapid response document as Alison Lundergan Grimes continues to tout a plan lacking in substance and job creation projections.  

Grimes Jobs Plan Called ‘Short On Specifics’

Herald Leader’s Sam Youngman: Grimes Jobs Plan ‘Short On Specifics.’ “For more than a year, Kentuckians have heard Grimes say in every conceivable way that she is not McConnell, with cursory efforts to introduce herself or what she stands for — a couple of bio ads and a jobs plan short on specifics.” (Sam Youngman, “Sam Youngman: Does Alison Lundergan Grimes have time to tell voters who she is?,” Herald-Leader, 9/15/14)

Courier Journal’s Joseph Gerth: ‘She Still Hasn’t Given Many Details Including The Number Of Jobs It Would Create Or The Cost Of It To Tax Payers.’ “Grimes has rolled out a jobs plan and talked about it on a couple of occasions but she still hasn’t given many details including the number of jobs it would create or the cost of it to tax payers.” (Joseph Gerth, Op-Ed, “Who Is Alison Lundergan Grimes?” Louisville Courier Journal, 2/8/14)

Grimes Sidestepped A Question About Whether She Is Promising Jobs.’ “In an interview after the speech, Grimes sidestepped a question about whether she is promising jobs. Instead she said she is putting forth ‘a proposal’ that, if implemented, will offer ‘limitless’ opportunities to create jobs.” (CN|2’s “Pure Politics” Blog, 1/16/14)

Buzzfeed’s Andrew Kaczynski: “Allison Grimes jobs plan reads little like a jobs plan and mostly like an attack on Mitch McConnell.” (Andrew Kaczynski, Twitter Feed, 9/18/14)

Think Progress’s Judd Legum: “Kind of a silly exercise for people running for Senate to have jobs ‘plans’ since they have no ability to enact anything” (Judd Legum, Twitter Feed, 9/18/14)
