Elizabeth Warren To Campaign For Grimes

Jun 12, 2014

An outspoken liberal U-S Senator from Massachusetts is set to lend her voice to democratic candidate Alison Lundergan Grimes.

Grimes' campaign announced Thursday a series of campaign events with Warren to criticize McConnell for blocking a bill that would have allowed college students to refinance their loans. The stops will include an event with students.

The McConnell campaign continues to pound Grimes for ignoring the coal industry in a speech during a Washington fundraiser. The campaign trotted out a Republican state senator and a Democratic mayor, both from coal mining counties, to say they don't trust Grimes after she had promised to use the fundraiser to demand Senate action on clean coal technology.

The Grimes campaign said Grimes had a private conversation with Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid about coal.
