In Kentucky, Grimes uses Bill Clinton to counteract Obama negatives

Former President Bill Clinton, left, is introduced to the audience by Kentucky Democratic Senatorial candidate Alison Lundergan Grimes before addressing a group of supporters during a political rally, Wednesday, Aug. 8, 2014, at the Hal Rogers Center in Hazard, Ky.

Mitch McConnell is trying to tag his Democratic opponent Alison Lundergan Grimes as “Barack Obama’s Kentucky candidate,” but Grimes clearly believes she’s found the antidote to that — being “Bill Clinton’s Kentucky candidate.” And she’s pushing it with all her might. “I’m not an empty dress! I’m not a cheerleader! I’m not a rubber stamp! But one label I will proudly wear is that of a Clinton Democrat,” Grimes declared to more than 450 donors at a fundraiser in Lexington, and then again to a rally here in Hazard at the Hal Rogers Center, where so many people tried to see her and the former president that even volunteers and holders of “VIP tickets” were turned away at the door.
