Quotes

"After trying for 16 months to buy this election, Mitch McConnell and the out-of-state special interests that support him are now trying to steal Kentucky’s Senate seat using questionable and possibly illegal voter suppression tactics. The despicable mailers targeting Kentucky voters with misleading information are just another sign of Mitch McConnell's desperation as Kentuckians hold him accountable for his 30-year failed record in Washington" Kentucky Democratic Party Chair Dan Logsdon said in a statement
"I think what (voters) do know about her at this point is that she has developed a very detailed jobs program, that she has taken a very strong position on these key pocketbook issues" Luallen said
...allies have spent more than $50 million running from his failed 30-year record in Washington," Kentucky Democratic Party Chairman Dan Logsdon said. "Momentum is clearly on [Democratic Senate candidate Alison Lundergan Grimes'] side as she draws record-breaking crowds of Kentuckians and runs laps around McConnell's rusted DC-based campaign."
"The Republican Party should be ashamed for defending Jobe, who has been caught drunk driving repeatedly," he said in the statement. "As for releasing public information about his arrests, we believe the voters of the 23rd District deserve to know the truth about Jeff Jobe. We will make sure in the future that we only remind voters that he was trying to pick up his children with a blood alcohol level more than twice the legal limit, that he has over 20 citations for illegal and dangerous driving violations, and that he served time in jail for his drunk driving. Jeff Jobe doesn’t deserve the support of the voters of the 23rd House District."
