Allison Lundergan Grimes is running.

Who is Allison Lundergan Grimes?

A formidable opponent. With big connections to the National Democratic Party and the Clintons.

Well, therder, I do not know about you in particular, but, it is common knowledge, that, in Kentucky, many Republicans register as Democrats so they can vote for the Democratic candidate that they think would lose to their candidate in the fall. Usually, Republicans are unopposed in their primaries. That rarely works, but, it may work against Alison as she hoped to pick up fed up Republicans from McConnell. Now, Patterson may get those.

Libertarian David Patterson has gotten on the ballot for U.S. Senate in Kentucky. With the 9000 signatures on his petition He sets up as a spoiler for McConnell's re-election chances. Libertarians tend to siphon off more republican than democrat votes. I am a registered democrat who may now vote libertarian in November.

Btc1 I agree. Since McConnell is accusing Grimes of being anticoal I think it's only fair to ask McConnell about his wife's anticoal activities. She is working openly for his campaign and should be open to the same scrutiny as any other political operative.

McConnell ought to pull the latest ad featuring his wife Elaine Chao. I've seen it several times and she's coming across as either a Stepford Wife or heavily medicated so she can keep a straight face.

I watched the Fancy Farm speeches on CSPAN. I know the anti-Obama rhetoric plays well here and I am certainly no fan of the President, but that seems to be all McConnell has to offer. He's got a small lead in the polls now. If he does win re-election it will be because a lot of voters held their nose to pick his name on the ballot.

I, that change would not bother me one bit. I just see Reid holding on like he always does. Does he even have a possible contender? Sue Lowden? Eh.....

Oh and, btw, I would not mind Pelosi's ouster either. I would like to see a new Democratic leader in both positions. Someone with power and the ability to compromise. But, that needs to be a quality of both sides. I think Obama would welcome that too.

B, I hold out hope that McConnell can lose, and the Republicans can still win enough seats to take control of the Senate.

I cannot imagine him being Senate Majority Leader. In fact, if Kentucky republicans dump out on McConnell, will Nevada Democrats dump Reid?
I can imagine a Senate without Reid and McConnell! That would be change I can believe in!

Further,

" “I have resigned from the executive committee of the Republican Party because I will not support Mitch McConnell,” Knott, chair of the Owensboro Tea Party, said in a telephone interview. “I have a big 4×8 sign in my front yard that says ‘Retire Mitch.’ It’s going to stay there through the election. I will not vote for that man.”

Knott does plan to come out to support other Republican candidates. But in terms of McConnell she is “just fed up” despite voting for him in the past.

When local party leaders are resigning because they can no longer support him, things are getting dire for Mitch McConnell. The only thing that McConnell has going for him is a big pile of money that will be spent by outside groups on his behalf this fall. Sen. McConnell’s campaign has been worst run spectacles of the year. The candidate himself has alternated between gaffes and offensive statements. "

"Tea party activists are outraged at McConnell because he funded an ad in support of Sen. Thad Cochran during the Republican Mississippi Senate runoff. McConnell has always been on thin ice with the state’s tea partiers, and his decision to play such an active role in the Mississippi contest is coming back to haunt him.

If Sen. McConnell loses the tea party crowd, he is going to have a nearly impossible time winning the election in November, and if the Senate Minority Leader loses his seat, Republican chances of taking back the Senate go down the tubes. By abandoning McConnell, tea partiers are doing what they do best. The tea party may once again end up helping Democrats keep their majority in the US Senate."

McConnell has problems in his OWN party.

I hate to tell you all, the snickering conservatives on here, that this is old news she did this last fall and earlier when she started her campaign. You see, here again, conservatives must paint all Democrats with the same brush. If you think she is impressed with Reid and Pelosi, think again. Not true, either. Even if that is important to Mitch to make the association in his ads.

Please understand Kentucky VOTERS are not the unintelligent hillbillies everyone wants to make them out to be. They are just tired of Mitch.

Ayup. He wuz. Democrats learned how dirty political pool was really played in Kentucky (especially those who worked in the campaigns). ;-P

btc1: "McConnell is going to paint her as her Daddy's child."

How so? She IS Jerry Lundergan's child - his daughter. A year ago, you said "the apple doesn't fall far from the tree," and you made a big stink that you'd never vote for a Lundergan - that you'd just as soon sit out voting in this race if McConnell and Alison Lundergan were the two tickets. (That's about the time when you decided to throw your hat in the race.) ROTFLOL! ;-)

"She needs to get used to it."

Ayup. She expects it.

Judging from the Lurch campaign's past actions, I don't think you'll have long to wait for the attack ads to start! And while that might be a tactical mistake for the sitting Senator, I don't think they can resist. It's just the way they are - attack, attack, attack.
If only he had attacked Harry Reid with the zeal with which he attacks his Kentucky opponents, he might have a little more standing with other Republicans!

I75 and therder, I do think she should have gone with just Alison Grimes. If any detriment to her is coming, it will be from her maiden name. Many times this primary season, I have already heard her referred to as just Alison Grimes. She will be Senator Grimes (D) KY from November on, anyway. She should just make that change now. McConnell is going to paint her as her Daddy's child. She needs to get used to it. He was as a crooked Kentucky Politician as they come. Those attacks need to come soon for her to be able to distance herself.

Mitch McConnell's attack machine will spend millions to portray Allison Lundergan Grimes as a "national Obama democrat"? If She is able to convince voters she is a "kentucky democrat", it will be a close election.

Both McConnell and Grimes easily won their primary races yesterday.

McConnell got 60% of the Republican vote, to Bevan's 36%.
Grimes got 76% of the Democratic vote.

Polls already show a race dead even - 44.8% to 44%

So Ms. Grimes, oops, let's call her by her chosen moniker, Alison Lundergan Grimes, gets to face off against the powerful, entrenched Senator of 30 years. So even if she is not a hyphenated democrat, she is a high fallutin' one.
What's cooking for the fall campaign, B ???

A new Bluegrass Poll – conducted for WKYT-TV, the Lexington Herald-Leader, the Louisville Courier-Journal, and WHAS-TV – found Grimes leading McConnell among registered Kentucky voters. Results show Grimes would win 46 percent of the vote compared to 42 percent for McConnell if the two face off against each other in the November general election. Former President Bill Clinton is planning a trip to Kentucky later this month to campaign for Grimes. She said Friday that the former president will campaign with her in Louisville on Feb. 25. She says Clinton has indicated he wants to make the Kentucky Senate race his top priority this year. Clinton is the last Democrat to carry Kentucky in a presidential election.

McConnell is in trouble. He's going to need every cent of that campaign war chest he's built up. It's no surprise that Bill Clinton is coming here. President Obama, on the other hand, probably won't even fly over Kentucky's airspace if the Grimes campaign has anything to do with it.

Wrong again. According to ABC News, seven of the ten wealthiest are democrats, and Mitch is not one of the three republicans in the top ten.

Matt Bevin is starting to raise significant money for his primary challenge against McConnell. I don't think he can beat McConnell but might make him spend a lot in the primary. Grimes recently accused McConnell of "laughing about the unemployed". It will take more than mocking McConnell to beat him. This will be a very dirty campaign on both sides. I will be very surprised if Bill Clinton doesn't come to Kentucky and campaign for her.

B, I have to disagree with your assessment of McConnell's ranking.

Boehner is Speaker of the Horse, a position usually seen as being third-most powerful position in US government. That's because the R's control the Horse and are the minority in the Senate.

Even if the R's controlled the Senate, the Senate Majority Leader is not seen as powerful of a position as Speaker of the Mouth.

Okay, b, it's good to have an inside source. Let us know if any really juicy tidbits come out of the soup during this campaign!

My post was largely tongue-in-cheek, I just saw an article with her name on it and I didn't want this valuable thread to fall into disuse.

It seems this campaign is really heating up now! Ol' Mitch has already launched several broadsides against her. Tell McConnell, if you can't stand the heat, get out of the kitchen! And tell Mitch that there is a rocking chair on the front porch with his name on it, for his retirement years.

I75, be certain whom you are addressing when you bring this subject up. I was the managing Chef for her family's catering service for 6 years. Yeah, what she selected to share was close to what can be found on line but so are a lot of families favorites. This is just a really dumb argument. What she provided were recipes I know were used in the catering business or very, very close.

So scrap this one. I am the source so no link needed.

B, your candidate was in the news again. Alison Lundergan Grimes Stole Her Family’s ‘Favorite Recipes’

Of course, taking a recipe from the internet and calling it your own doesn't weigh like quoting some obscure academic passage when you're a Senator from Kentucky, now, does it? And perhaps whoever first posted those recipes online got them first from the Grimes family anyway. Maybe they're cousins? Anyhow, are recipes copyrightable material?

streetrider, "as an independent that has voted for people of both parties, mitch did not surrender ... There is no way to get back our world standing after defaulting, unless the goal is to go to a new global currency"

If your credit card balance equaled your income and your spending was 1.5 times your gross income and your credit card was maxed out and the bank refused to increase your borrowing limit unless you got your spending under control - would your bankruptcy be due to your profligate spending or the bank's refusal to continue to support it?

The shutdown came because the Obama administration refused to address its spending and the House demanded spending cuts as a condition of raising the borrowing limit.

You may choose to blame the GOP for the shutdown, but in truth they were the only adults at the table. And Mitch did indeed surrender rather than insist on a return to fiscal responsibility.

And a default would indeed be a serious thing for our economy, but it is the overspending that would have caused it - not fiscal restraint.

"The longer the private sector takes to recover jobs, the longer the GOP brand is tarnished"

The more the administration increases taxing and spending the less able the private sector is to recover. Government taxing, borrowing, and spending without restraint takes resources away that industry needs to expand and grow their businesses.

It is the Democrats that have caused the sluggish recovery from the most recent recession - just as they did during the Great Depression.

"We have tried spending money. We are spending more than we have ever spent before and it does not work. And I have just one interest, and if I am wrong … somebody else can have my job. I want to see this country prosperous. I want to see people get a job. I want to see people get enough to eat. We have never made good on our promises. … I say after eight years of this Administration we have just as much unemployment as when we started. … And an enormous debt to boot."
- Henry Morgenthau, Jr. - U.S. Secretary of the Treasury during the administration of Franklin D. Roosevelt.

The Employment-Population Ratio of those aged 16 and over shows the persistent unemployment rate today in contrast to the sharp recovery during and after the Reagan administration's cuts in taxes and spending.

"There is no way to get back our world standing after defaulting, unless the goal is to go to a new global currency"

There is no way to get back our world standing after this administration has destroyed the value of our currency by creating money out of thin air, and the world is already searching for a replacement for the U.S. dollar as a reserve currency because we are debasing our currency so rapidly.

The progressive model does not work and it leads everyone that tries it to ruin.

If McConnell isn't up to the fight he needs to be replaced with someone that is.

Panama19

as an independent that has voted for people of both parties, mitch did not surrender.

He may have realized the country is more important than party ideology.

There is no way to get back our world standing after defaulting, unless the goal is to go to a new global currency.

If shrinking the government, and curbing spending is the true goal of the Tea party then they need to take another approach. Not raising the ceiling is not the answer.

Growing private sector jobs that reward better than government jobs would go a long way, especially since the government ranks on top as the number one employee.
Holding the economy ransom is not helping them either. The longer the private sector takes to recover jobs, the longer the GOP brand is tarnished.Maybe the Tea Party should break loose of the GOP there is always room for a third or fourth party.

Just my two cents, the bottom line is Mitch did the best he could for the folks he represents.

streetrider, "What is the real gain to unseat him?"

Same as getting rid of Specter. Whenever his support was crucial on an important issue he voted with the Democrats.

Might as well have a Democrat in office as a GOP politician that is addicted to surrender whenever there is a fight.

The result is the same either way.

btc1: "Thin is how the Tea Party is wearing."

That's your hope. The fact that libs are constantly bringing up the Tea Party shows they actually fear the Tea Parties will get in the way of their BIG government agendas. (And I would agree, they are wearing thin on the supporters of massive government expansion.)

streetrider: "It is always hard to unseat an incumbent, Mitch brought home the bacon for his area. ....What is the real gain to unseat him?"

Sage observation. There is no gain, for Kentucky. If McConnell had been a Democrat, the Democrats would be touting all the pork he brought home over the past three decades--about how good he'd been for Kentucky. Instead, they just want him gone at all costs--because they want a Democrat in that seat. Period.

If Allison Lundergan, whom btc1 swore he would never vote for a Lundergan, in the Ashley Judd thread (because apples don't fall far from the tree), became the next Kentucky Senator, the Junior Senator would have far less clout, yet would be expected to keep bringing it home for the Commonwealth of Kentucky. It's a non sequitur to be reading Democrats railing against someone who keeps bringing home exactly what they want and expect.

Whether I agree with the way D.C. operates or not, that IS the system we have now. The best thing for Kentucky is for Mitch McConnell to have another 6 years before retiring (even lots of KY Democrats know that) leaving a scandal-free record of serving the Commonwealth behind him.

Not frugal, but a very smart man.

What is the real gain to unseat him?
