Alison Lundergan Grimes Could Be the One to Finally Unseat Mitch McConnell

Mitch McConnell is notorious for throwing mud. He'll throw everything he can to try and knock down his opponents. The Republican Party is already starting to step away from him in the Senate and now McConnell faces a primary challenge from Matt Bevin who recently said, “There’s a tremendous level of dissatisfaction with the fact that for 30 years, he’s been just a big government guy....He votes for every bailout, he votes for every piece of pork, he is a huge fan of earmarking — it has been temporarily banned, as you know — but folks like Mitch McConnell have made a career of greasing the wheels for themselves and for others.”

Now, meet Democrat Alison Grimes, Kentucky Secretary of State. This is her first video inviting people to her campaign kickoff in Lexington Kentucky. She will hold McConnell accountable for his actions that hurt the people of Kentucky. 


As McConnell begins to throw mud at his opponents remember that he is just trying to distract you from all the horrendous things he has done with his career in the senate. Just remember that he voted to double Medicare premiums on Kentucky seniors and against every law that would benefit women.  

As he throws mud and attacks his opponents remember that he hurt all Americans by single-handedly blocking debate, stopping all talk, on any jobs bills, or anything to improve the economy. (I covered this previously here.)

Serial-Entrepreneur CEO Biz Owner. Follow @JoinTeamAmerica a bipartisan team producing ideas to improve America and government policy. I am vehemently against those who work to score political points rather than provide solutions. I fight to point out when bias and misinformation are being put forwards. I believe our Democracy is a gift, it needs to be cherished, and honored by having well thought out debate, with primary source data to back up statements. Especially, while we are holding up Democracy as the example to the world. I am an independent who will appear partisan, but only when challenging those who are working to score political points rather than working to find solutions to build success in America. Bottom line: Policies need input from each perspective. Real problems need to be addressed in ways that actually get the job done. Policies should find the line between maximum individual responsibility and minimum input of government resources; that will actually get the job done. All government programs have major problems and must be put into a rigorous and constant state of improvement. While they all have major problems, the US military is the strongest in the history of the world, NASA has had the greatest exploration achievements off planet Earth in the history of mankind, and somehow America is the number one economy in the world. I believe the most important organization to support and put energy into today is www.nolabels.org
