Her campaign put out a brief statement titled, "Grimes Calls For Veterans Affairs Secretary Resignation" in which she says: "We owe a solemn obligation to our veterans, and our government defaulted on that contract. I don't see how that breach of trust with our veterans can be repaired if the current leadership stays in place."

Her opponent, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), has been very critical of the Obama administration and Shinseki but has stopped short of calling on him to resign.
