‘WATCH: Mitch McConnell Releases One Of The Strangest Ads Ever’
‘One day after Kentucky Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes (D) announced her intention to run for U.S. Senate in 2014, incumbent Mitch McConnell (R-KY) welcomed her to the race with one of the most bizarre campaign videos in living memory’.
‘In a press release, McConnell’s campaign manager Jesse Benton said’ : “We, at Team Mitch, are nothing if not magnanimous, so decided to welcome her to the race with what we imagine her campaign theme song might be,” he continued. “The song highlights her signature initiative to ‘preserve, protect, and promote Alison Lundergan Grimes,’ and is entitled ‘What Rhymes with Alison Lundergan Grimes?’”
‘The bad acid trip of an ad is the latest in a series of efforts by the McConnell campaign to reach out to young voters.
