LOUISVILLE – Team Mitch today released the following statement and background information on Alison Lundergan Grimes' support for President Obama's budget priorities despite his administration's War on Coal. 

"We applaud Alison Lundergan Grimes for finally coming clean with Kentucky voters that she would not stand up to Obama's budget priorities as his administration wages its war on Kentucky coal,” said Team Mitch spokeswoman Allison Moore. “Previously, Alison Grimes reserved this kind of candor for Harry Reid and Obama liberals at fundraisers so it's refreshing that she now feels free to criticize Sen. McConnell for standing up for Kentucky jobs."


Alison Lundergan Grimes: “’I think this recording is alarming. He has promised further gridlock if elected but this is action he will directly take at the expense of Kentuckians.’” (Dana Bash, “McConnell, the Democrats and the limits of a secret tape,” CNN, 8/27/14)
