Grimes' New Ad Takes Aim At Opponent And Medicare

Jul 8, 2014

Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes has released a new campaign ad in her bid for the state Senate seat. 

The ad titled 'Questions from Don' hit the internet this morning and is the first from Grimes' Campaign with a direct criticism against U.S. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell.

Team Mitch responded with this written statement from spokeswoman Allison Moore.  "It says a lot about the candidacy of Alison Lundergan Grimes that she's a full four months away from the election and she already hit the panic button by resorting to the oldest, most cynical attack in the Obama playbook to scare Kentucky seniors. The simple reality is that Senator McConnell has fought to protect Medicare, while Alison Lundergan Grimes and her political benefactors have raided it by $700 billion to pay for Obamacare.”

Grimes’ camp said it will spend "six figures" to air the ad statewide.
