Kentucky Democratic Senate candidate Alison Lundergan Grimes invited Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) to go to a gun range.

“As an NRA member, my strong support for the Second Amendment is unquestioned. I am proud of Kentucky’s long-held gun ownership, sporting and hunting traditions,” Grimes said in a statement on Friday. “It is unfortunate that Senator McConnell is desperate to mislead Kentucky voters about my strong support for the Second Amendment. In the Senate, I will protect my fellow Kentuckians’ right to keep and bear arms. Whenever he’s not busy pandering to Washington lobbyists, I welcome Senator McConnell to come shoot with me at the range any day.”

Along with the statement the Grimes campaign released a photo of Grimes holding a rifle (pictured above).
