HOL­LY­WOOD VS. MCCON­NELL, THE SE­QUEL

The Washington Times Daily - - Politics -

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.
