CORBIN — Then she hit on her other major theme: McConnell’s near 30 years in the Senate, a record McConnell touts as a reason for re-election because he’s built seniority and power, something he did Monday at a stop in Bowling Green. He said failure by Kentucky voters to send him back to possibly become Majority Leader would be “an incredible loss of influence (for) our state.”
But Grimes says McConnell has been there too long, so long he’s interested only in his career and not the welfare of middle class Kentucky families.
“I don’t think we look at this race as a toss-up,” Grimes said. “I think we’re ready to toss out our senior senator. We are in this to win it.”
