LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) -- The campaigns of Sen. Mitch McConnell (R) and Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes (D) have released statements in response to Monday's release of a WHAS11/Courier-Journal Bluegrass Poll of Kentucky's U.S. Senate race.
"This election is about the very simple reality that Barack Obama needs Alison Lundergan Grimes to implement his agenda, and Kentucky needs Mitch McConnell to implement ours. Alison Lundergan Grimes can replicate Obama's false ads, but she obviously can't convince Kentuckians that they should trade in Senator McConnell's record of accomplishments for another Obama vote in the Senate."
"For over a year we've run a restrained, disciplined campaign, waiting to see the best Darth Vader's supposed 'presidential-level campaign' could deliver. To date, we remain unimpressed and well-positioned to use our multi-million dollar war chest to fire with both barrels through Fancy Farm and into Election Day. The senior senator and his Washington cronies have spent $30 million to eke out a tie, but his 30-year Washington record remains a dead weight on his reelection effort."
