With the announcement of 2nd quarter fundraising numbers yesterday, it’s worth noting the following from Nicholas Confessore in the New York Times & on MSNBC this morning:
“None of the candidates on either side raised more than Alison Lundergan Grimes, the Kentucky Democrat who has become a favorite of liberal donors who are eager to knock off Mitch McConnell, the Senate minority leader.” (Nicholas Confessore, “Looking to the Fall, Democrats in Senate Races Lead Fund-Raising,” New York Times, 7/15/14)
“Everyone wants to beat Mitch McConnell on the left. He’s the poster child for the Senate Republicans.” (Nicholas Confessore, Morning Joe, MSNBC, 7/16/14)
Plain and simple, the primary reason Alison Lundergan Grimes is raising hoards of cash is because she’s Obama’s Kentucky candidate, and his liberal pals will pull out every stop to fill her campaign coffers with their anti-Kentucky dollars in an effort to unseat Sen. McConnell. The Obama liberals, radical environmentalists, and Hollywood elite are determined to enact their liberal policies, and they know that electing Grimes ensures their anti-coal, anti-gun, and outrageous tax-and-spend agenda succeeds.
