Alison Lundergan Grimes: Out of Touch with Kentucky

Hey Alison, did you know that coal-powered plants generated 93% of our electricity in Kentucky last year? 

 

 

Oh, and did you know that we're the 3rd-largest coal producing state in the country?

 

Then you definitely didn't know that coal contributes $10 billion to Kentucky's economy every year

 

...and that 89,350 Kentuckians are employed as a result of the coal industry.

 

Not to mention that the coal industry provides $5.5 billion in wages to Kentuckians.

 

And one last thing, Alison - our coal miners are from Kentucky, not Europe!
