Bill Clinton said he knows many Kentucky voters are angry at President Barack Obama, but he urged them Tuesday not to take it out on Democrat Alison Lundergan Grimes in her bid to unseat a 30-year Senate incumbent.
A new poll shows that Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell only has a one-point lead over Democratic challenger Alison Lundergan Grimes for his Kentucky Senate seat.
In the final weeks of a cross-country battle for Senate control, officials in both political parties are making multimillion-dollar advertising decisions that offer clues about where the real battlefields lie.
Despite her pledge, Grimes stuck to her days-long refusal to say if she voted for Obama in 2008 and 2012. She insisted that if she answered the question, it would “compromise a constitutional right” to cast a secret ballot.
U.S. Senate candidate Alison Lundergan Grimes turned to Bill Clinton on Wednesday to help insulate her from an unpopular Democratic president who is dragging down her support in the traditional Democratic stronghold of eastern Kentucky.
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell largely ignored his challengers at Kentucky’s premier political showdown Saturday, aiming his criticism instead at President Barack Obama while touting his GOP leadership role.
