So, GOP plus 8-9 in Senate, poss double-digit pickups in House, winning tight (and maybe unexpected) Gov races. Yes, that’s a wave.— Stephen Hayes (@stephenfhayes) November 5, 2014
"They all brought their Obama shirts to campaign in, only to learn that they should not be connecting Alison Grimes to Obama"...
For second time, Grimes refuses to say if she voted for Obama: It's a matter of principle!...
A Democratic operative deleted her Twitter account Monday following a series of what some called racist remarks about Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell’s wife, Elaine Chao.
Chao, former U.S. Labor Secretary under President George W. Bush, is Asian.
Kathy Groob, who describes herself as an “advocate for women in politics,” sent a series of tweets related to Chao at a political event Saturday.
According to WKMS, Groob sent the tweets in response to comments McConnell made at the event, in which he referred to his wife as "the only Kentucky woman who served in a president’s cabinet."
Following widespread criticism from her own party, Groob later apologized for her “poor choice of words” and deleted her Twitter account.
The tweets that started it all:
Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) railed against Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) on Wednesday for failing to support her student loan refinancing proposal, which the Senate killed in a 56-38 vote earlier in the day.... When MSNBC's Chris Hayes asked Warren how she planned to fight back, the senator gave a response that could shake things up in Kentucky, where McConnell faces a tough race for reelection against Democrat Alison Lundergan Grimes. "One way I'm going to start fighting back is I'm going to go down to Kentucky and I'm going to campaign for Alison Lundergan Grimes," Warren said. "She's tough, she's feisty, she endorsed the student loan bill, said she wanted to bring down interest rates for Kentuckians. ... So my view is I'm going to get out there and try to make this happen for her."Seems to me that making Warren an issue in the race is risky for Grimes.
