Kentucky Democratic Senate candidate Alison Grimes, who is hoping to unseat Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, refused today to say whether she voted for President Obama.
Grimes, who was seeking the endorsement from the Louisville Courier-Journal editorial board, repeatedly dodged the question.
Sure, it’s a sad commentary on Obama. But it is also, quite simply, one of the most craven performances I have ever seen on the campaign trail.
Through his fundraising for the DNC and the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, Obama has raised hundred of thousands if not millions of dollars for her campaign.
Grimes must assume that having character is not a qualification Kentucky voters are interested in.
