New McConnell Ad Features Chuck Todd Saying Grimes ‘Disqualified Herself’

Views

A new ad by Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) features NBC “Meet The Press” host Chuck Todd saying Democrat Alison Lundergan Grimes “disqualified herself” by refusing to say in a recent interview if she voted for President Barack Obama.

The stumble last week led to pushback for Grimes, who is polling neck and neck with the Senate Republican leader.

The McConnell campaign said on Monday that the ad, called “Disqualified,” will air on TV statewide. It can be watched below.
