Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell's (R-KY) re-election campaign is getting into the holiday spirit with its latest attack ad.
The ad is a political version of the "'Twas The Night Before Christmas" featuring McConnell attacking Democratic Senate candidate Alison Lundergan Grimes.
"Twas the night before Christmas, four years ago," McConnell said in the radio ad. "Liberals wanted Obamacare but Kentucky said no. If you like your plan you keep it, they said with a twinkle in their eye. Newspapers now say, that was the year's biggest lie. Higher taxes, more spending, sky-high record debt, Obama's war on coal —had enough yet? So Obama wondered who's my candidate for these times? And guess who it goes to?"
A voice then interrupts McConnell announcing "Alison Lundergan Grimes" as the Democratic nominee for the Kentucky Senate seat.
"The differences are stark and your choice will be clear," McConnell continued. "But you’ll make your decision in November next year. I’m Mitch McConnell and this approved message is mine, thanks to the McConnell Senate Committee ’14, who paid for this time. So Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to Kentuckians all, especially Alison Lundergan Grimes, I’ll see you next Fall."
The Grimes campaign said McConnell was playing "political games."
"As we've seen from his insurmountable disapproval ratings, Kentuckians are tired of Mitch McConnell's silly political games," Grimes spokeswoman Charly Norton said in a statement. "Our campaign looks forward to continuing to hold McConnell accountable as folks across the Commonwealth unite around Alison's campaign. The people of Kentucky are ready for a new senator in the new year."
