GRIMES: Hi, I'm Alison Lundergan Grimes, and I want to take a moment to talk with you about why I'm running for Senate. This is a frustrating time our country. The economy is still struggling, people are working harder for less, and here in Kentucky we feel it more than most. And it seems no matter how many elections we have, nothing gets better in Washington—it only gets worse. A lot of that is because the people at the top in both political parties. If we keep sending them back, nothing will change. I'm running because I believe we need a senator who put partisanship aside and works with both Democrats and Republicans to do what's right for Kentucky and for our country. And no matter who the president is, I won't answer to them. I’ll only answer to you. I approve this message, because it's time Washington put the good of our people ahead of the bad that comes from acting petty and small. We’ve had too much of that for too long. It can all start here.
