Some say he has been in DC too long or hasn't done enough for KY. For those who think that, what happens if we elect Alison Lundergan Grimes?

As a member of the MINORITY party, McConnell is limited. Harry Reid controls the Senate and has said that "coal makes us sick".
Alison Lundergan Grimes is being funded by leftist groups such as Hollywood stars like Affleck, Streisand and Woody Allen. These lunatic leftists don't understand KY values. On issues like coal, guns, etc. she is to the left of McConnell. We saw how Nancy Pelosi twisted Ben Chandler's arm on many issues.

Alison Lundergan Grimes party in the Senate is the incumbent party while McConnell's party is the outsider party thanks to a 10 seat deficit.
Grimes is too liberal. Her ex-convict daddy Jerry sent money for NYC Mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner a New York liberal. Her liberal fundraisers in Boston and San Franciso prove she is out of touch with KY. The question is can she trick you to think she is who she is on the campaign trail and get you to ignore her liberal fundraisers? Trickster Alison Lundergan Grimes lying about her views as she gets the big liberal bucks from the east and west coast.
Given that 4 of the last US elections saw a Democrat presidential candidate get over 300 EVs (no Republican has won over 300 EVS since 1988), we need McConnell to stop Obama and Dirty Harry Reid.
When vacancies for Supreme Court and presidential cabinet positions arise, we don't need someone like Grimes who will follow the path of other Senate Democrats. Harry Reid wants her for some reason. The real bum is the party of Alison Lundergan Grimes who has controlled the Senate for 7 years with 7% unemployment. Time for McConnell to have his chance to be majority leader. The chance of Grimes and her liberal fundraisers getting another vote is frightening. Stick with Mitch. Grimes is too liberal!

We need to vote every incumbent out of office and put term limits in place for Congress.

That includes McConnell. I don't much care who gets elected; just get that stupid moron out of office. He's done nothing but pad his pockets with cash since taking office.

McConnell needs to go, he has aided the problems we have right now, if he was going to fight for Kentucky, he would have already, he is betraying not only Kentucky but his republican base, many are upset at how things are going down, and that is why I'm asking all Kentuckians, Democratic, Green, Libertarian, Constitutionalist, and Independents, to switch to Republican by 12/31/13, so that you can vote for Shawna Sterling in the Republican primary in Kentucky on 5/20/14, Shawna is an Oath Taker and Constitutionalist - Shawna4Freedom.com

I will vote for Mitch if he wins the primary but we need a republican with some backbone in there. He caved too much over the shut down and debt limit. Need some more tea party candidates to run.

Mitch must be on the take, else we would have legal Marijuana.

The US Governments own web site states that 71 percent of the population wants legal pot, and since he is elected by votes, you would think that 71 percent of the people would be of interest to him.

If not, then is he taking money from Anheuser-Busch or Pfizer, both who spend multiple millions to keep marijuana illegal.

Face it, I will vote for whoever will support their people, not the big money hand outs.
