We’ve figured out how media darling Alison Lundergan Grimes can beat Mitch McConnell. Have him die of laughter.
“You all know Mitch McConnell said his number one priority was to make sure that our president didn’t see another term,” Grimes told the crowd. “Well, it is my number one priority to make sure Mitch McConnell doesn’t see a sixth term.”
McConnell senior adviser Josh Holmes responded to that comment Tuesday night by saying, “If you’re looking for a single item that sheds light on this entire race, it’s that Alison Lundergan Grimes isn’t just supporting Barack Obama’s policies, she’s criticizing McConnell for opposing his re-election for president.”
After the event, Grimes said her campaign’s internal poll numbers “have shown, as the polls have shown for a year, this race continues to be a complete and total dead heat.”
As foreign policy inches its way into a debate that has largely focused on the economy, Grimes was asked about congressional efforts to aid Israel’s missile defense system, known as the Iron Dome.
“Obviously, Israel is one of our strongest allies in the Middle East, and she has the right to defend herself,” Grimes said. “But the loss of life, especially the innocent civilians in Gaza, is a tragedy. The Iron Dome has been a big reason why Israel has been able to withstand the terrorists that have tried to tunnel their way in.
