GRIMES: My fellow Kentuckians, it is an honor to stand before you as your nominee. Together we will take this fight to Mitch McConnell and hold him accountable for his 30 years of failed leadership. I am running because Kentucky deserves better. We deserve a senator for the people of this state. This election, it is not about party control. It is about two very different visions for the Commonwealth of Kentucky: one that wants to take us forward where we should and deserve to be and another that wants to continue to hold us back as he has for the past three decades. This election will be about holding you, Senator McConnell, accountable for all that has happened on your watch. It is my number one priority to make sure Mitch McConnell doesn’t see another term. Kentucky, we must do better, we can do better, and together we will do better. Thank you. God bless you, the Commonwealth of Kentucky.
