Kentucky Senate candidates travel Commonwealth on Election Day eve


REPUBLICANS ARE CALLING TOMORROW’S ELECTION DAY A REFERENDUM ON THE PRESIDENT. ONE EVER THE BIGOT BATTLES HAPPENING IN THE BLUEGRASS WILL BE OF COURSE THAT U.S. SENATE RACE COMING DOWN TO THE WIRE. JOHN LONDON LEADING THE WAY WITH THE CANDIDATES’ STOPS TONIGHT. THE FINAL PUSH OF THIS KENTUCKY SENATE INCLUDING FEST CAME WITH NO SMALL DEGREE OF PATIENCE. ALLISON LUNDGREN GRIMES RAN TWO HOURS BEHIND FOR HER APPEARANCE. MITCH MCCONNELL WAS CLOSER ON TIME MAINTAINING THIS ELECTION IS A REFERENDUM ON PRESIDENT OBAMA. KENTUCKY WILL TELL HIM WE HAVEN’T SEEN YOU MUCH AND WE WANT TO SEE YOU EVEN LESS. [CHEERING] GRIMES INSISTS THE RACE IS A REFERENDUM ON MITCH HIMSELF. I SO APPRECIATE YOU BEING SO PATIENT FOR US TO GET HERE. WE’VE WAITED LONG ENOUGH FOR A NEW SENATOR, 30 YEARS IS LONG ENOUGH. [APPLAUSE] SHE IS A NEW FACE BUT SHE IS FOR THE STATUS QUO. IF YOU WANT TO CHANGE AMERICA I’M YOUR CANDIDATE TOMORROW. [CHEERING] MCCONNELL TELLS ME IF HE CAN WIN NORTHERN KENTUCKY BY AS MUCH AS HE LOSES HEAVY DEMOCRATIC ELECTRICS LEXINGTON AND LOUISVILLE HE WILL WIN. YOU TELL MITCH MA CANAL WE ARE READY FOR A NEW SENATOR. SHE REGARDS MITCH AS THE GRIDLOCK KING. THEY PLEDGE AND ACTIVIST SENATE IF IT’S IN REPUBLICAN HANDS. WHEN WE TAKE OVER YOU’LL SEE SOMETHING DIFFERENT. YOU’VE SEEN NO LEGISLATION PRESENTED TO THE PRESIDENT REALLY IN TWO YEARS. MCCONNELL’S APPROVING RATING IN THE COMMONWEALTH IS LOW BUT THE PRESIDENT APRIL IS EVEN LOWER. THE BOONE COUNTY TEA PARTY OPPOSED MCCONNELL IN THE PRIMARY. WHEN PUSH COMES TO SHOVE HE’S ABSOLUTELY THE BEST THAT WE HAVE FOR OUR CHOICES THIS TIME. THE CANDIDATES ARE CRISSCROSSING THE COMMONWEALTH TODAY, PADUCAH, BOWLING GREEN. OWENSBORO, NORTHERN KENTUCKY, RUNNING HARD, RUNNING LATE, RUNNING TO THE WIRE. HE’LL BE OUT OF TIME COME TOMORROW. [CHEERING] WE NEED TO RUN THE SCORE UP HERE TOMORROW AND I’M CONFIDENT YOU’RE GOING TO DO IT, RIGHT? [CHEERING] BY THE TIME IT’S ALL ADDED UP THE RACE MIGHT HIT OR EXCEED $75 MILLION. ALL RIGHT, JOHN LONDON THANK YOU VERY MUCH.
