We cannot think of many 2014 outcomes more delicious than replacing that face of obstruction, Mitch McConnell, with progressive, pro-choice, Democrat Alison Lundergan Grimes.

As Kentucky’s current Secretary of State, Alison Lundergan Grimes has already proven she can win a statewide election in the same region that has sent Mitch McConnell to the Senate for the last 30 years. Polls show that McConnell is currently one of the most disliked members of Congress on both the left and the right — so he is vulnerable, even though his campaign funding pockets are deep. This is why his minions have been attacking Alison, an onslaught that began months before the official start of the 2014 campaign.
From her campaign website:
It’s time to put politics aside, put our country first and do what’s right for Kentucky and for our nation. I have been working to improve the lives of my fellow Kentuckians all my life, from defending small businesses and providing free legal services to victims of domestic violence to working to provide sufficient food to struggling families and ensuring that Kentucky veterans have real access to their right to vote.
