McConnell Heads to Eastern Kentucky for Bus Tour

WILLIAMSBURG, Ky. (WBKO) -- -- Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell is in eastern Kentucky on Thursday and Friday for a two-day bus tour through 10 counties in his campaign against Democratic challenger Alison Lundergan Grimes.

Veteran Republican U.S. Rep. Hal Rogers, who has represented the region for more than three decades, will join McConnell as he visits coal country.

McConnell is taking the opportunity to continue bashing Obama, the EPA, Grimes and most recently Bill Clinton after his trip to the Commonwealth Wednesday.

"My opponent said she's a Clinton democrat. You may or may not know that President Clinton endorsed these new EPA regulations. President Obama named the EPA building after Bill Clinton in 2013. There is not a dime's worth of difference between a Clinton democrat and an Obama democrat when it comes to coal. We will not be fooled!" said Sen. Mitch McConnell.

Grimes campaigned in Lexington and Hazard on Wednesday with former President Bill Clinton. There Grimes touted she is the pro-coal Senator in this race and that it's time to get Sen. Mitch McConnell out of office.

McConnell will finish his two day tour tomorrow. is happy to provide a forum for commenting and discussion. Please respect and abide by the house rules:
