Grimes Lines Her Crowds With People From New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Washington

LOUISVILLE – Team Mitch released the following statement and background information on Alison Lundergan Grimes lining her events with out of state partisans.

“Alison Lundergan Grimes has to line her crowds with out of state partisans because Kentuckians are exhausted with her candidacy and the excuses about her vote for Obama. It’s obvious that she’s in bad shape heading into next Tuesday and she’s hoping these out of state crowds will make it look like she’s not,” said Team Mitch spokeswoman Allison Moore.

Grimes Crowd: New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania

Alison Grimes Had To Bring People In From Pennsylvania, New York, And New Jersey For Her Elizabeth Warren Rally. "Asking for a show of hands from those who had traveled from out of state, Londrigan encouraged those whose hands shot up to say where they were from, and shouts of Pennsylvania, New York and New Jersey rang out from the crowd." (Sam Youngman, “Leaning on labor and surrogates, Grimes promises 'revolution',” Herald-Leader, 10/28/14)
