Responding to a New Rasmussen Reports poll that shows either Republican U.S. Senate candidate defeating either Democrat candidate, the Daniel Mongiardo campaign's spin is that he is independent enough to tap into the conservative backlash against Obama-care, etc.

Here is the news release:

Mongiardo Campaign Statement on Rasmussen Poll

FRANKFORT --- The Mongiardo for U.S. Senate campaign today issued the following statement on the most recent Rasmussen Poll:
 “Today’s poll simply confirms that Kentucky voters are frustrated by an economy that is not improving their lives and want an independent Senator who puts their interests first---before the interest of either Washington Democratic or Republican political leaders.
“Daniel Mongiardo is the only candidate running who has taken on both national Republican and Democratic leaders.  In 2004, Daniel ran against the failed economic policies of George Bush and Jim Bunning, and in 2009 Daniel has opposed Democratic sponsored cap and trade measures which would hike Kentucky electric rates and hurt Kentucky’s coal industry. Daniel Mongiardo will always put the interests of Kentucky working families first.”
