She apparently wants you to believe she has nothing to do with the head of her party. Guy named Obama.
Kentucky Democratic Senate candidate Alison Lundergan Grimes goes skeet shooting to show her independence from President Obama in her newest ad.
The ad features Grimes standing in a field, wearing protective gear and a shooting vest, aiming at clay pigeons while she outlines a series of hits on Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.).
“Mitch McConnell wants you to think I’m Barack Obama. Mitch is the same guy who thought Duke basketball players were U.K. Or who’s attacking me on coal after doing next to nothing while we’ve lost thousands of coal jobs. He even said it’s not his job to bring jobs to Kentucky,” she says in the ad.
“I’m not Barack Obama. I disagree with him on guns, coal and the EPA. And Mitch — that’s not how you hold a gun,” Grimes closes, over a shot of McConnell awkwardly brandishing a gun at a conservative conference earlier this year.
Got it, Alison. Democrats are all for gun ownership and safety. Right.
But Grimes drew flak for her own use of a gun in the campaign, after her campaign released a photo of her shooting a shotgun without wearing proper protective gear.
This time, however, she’s decked out in goggles and earplugs as she aims at the clay pigeons.
