Trey Grayson wins the award for quickest e-mail blast in the wake of the Republican victory in the Massachusetts special election. As my Washington Post "breaking news" email declared Scott Brown the winner, Grayson's campaign sent this missive:
Secretary of State Trey Grayson made the following statement in response to Massachusetts State Senator Scott Brown’s win in the special election for U.S. Senate:
“Kentuckians had it right in 2008 when we overwhelmingly rejected the radical liberal agenda of President Obama and the Congressional majority in Washington. It appears much of the rest of the country is now coming around to our way of thinking after a year of an attempted government takeover of health care, closed door negotiations, secret back room deals, the push for a cap and trade law to create a national energy tax, and more out-of-control spending and borrowing than our nation has ever seen.
“My heart felt congratulations goes out to Scott Brown, his family and campaign staff and volunteers. They earned this victory. It is not just a victory for Massachusetts, but for the whole country. Let’s hope that much like our own Ron Lewis’ race in 1994 this race will be a bellwether for the election results this fall. Americans didn’t vote for more intrusive government, higher taxes and a skyrocketing national debt in 2008, but that’s what we’ve gotten from this Congress. If I’m elected to the U.S. Senate my top priority will be working to restore our nation’s fiscal health.”
