Mitch McConnell

The National Memo
Help us reach our end of the month goalDear Friend,

I wanted to introduce myself. I'm Alison Lundergan Grimes and I'm running to retire Mitch McConnell. With your help, I will be the next United States Senator from Kentucky.

I'm running because there was a time that Washington worked for the people. It was a time when differences could be put aside. It wasn't always easy, but our elected officials worked together to try to find a common ground for the sake of our country.

Compromise and common ground aren't things that we should be afraid or ashamed of. But there is a disease of dysfunction in Washington, and the self-proclaimed "Guardian of Gridlock" Senator McConnell is at the center of it.

Senator McConnell has wasted decades blocking legislation that could help Kentuckians and move this nation forward. He's led the charge on over 400 filibusters -- an unprecedented level of obstruction in Washington. Frankly, if Senator McConnell had a kidney stone, he wouldn't pass that either! I'm asking for your help today to make sure that McConnell's obstruction stops now.

Our campaign is setting a goal to reach 10,000 strong to retire Mitch McConnell. Will you click here to join the thousands who have already added their name?

Our campaign has got the momentum on our side. Polls show this race is in a dead heat and the non-partisan Cook Political Report changed our race from "Likely Republican" to "Toss Up."

Now, I don't scare easy, but our opponent isn't going to take this race lying down. His Washington allies and his Super PAC's limitless bank account are only a phone call away, so I'm counting on your help today to build a network of grassroots supporters ready for change in Washington.

You know what we're up against, but look how far we've already come. After 30 years of failed leadership, it's time we had a Senator that will put American families first.

Add your name today in support of retiring Mitch McConnell - and then share with your friends and family and tell them to do the same!

Thanks for all you do.
