HOLLYWOOD VS. MCCONNELL, THE SEQUEL
Sixty top Hollywood stars — we’re talking Jerry Seinfeld and Ben Affleck here — have contributed to the $2.5 million campaign chest of Alison Lundergan Grimes, age 34 and a Democrat who is challenging Sen. Mitch McConnell, Kentucky Republican, in 2014. Not good for the Blue Grass State, perhaps.
“You couldn’t find a collection of people anywhere in America who are more hostile to Kentucky values and conservative principles than the ones on Alison Lundergan Grimes’ major donor list,” Allison Moore — Mr. McConnell’s campaign manager — tells Inside the Beltway.
“It sure is curious that she spends all her time chatting with professed enemies of coal, Obama enthusiasts and noted Hollywood liberals but can’t say a word about what she believes back in Kentucky,” Ms. Moore observes.
