Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Greg Leichty offers harsh criticism of Grimes

04/28/2014 06:37 PM

Greg Leichty might not win the Democratic nomination for U.S. Senate, but he at least wants to have an effect on the race by helping likely nominee Alison Lundergan Grimes “up her game” by being more specific and cutting out the “mush-mouth” answers.

Leichty, a communications professor at the University of Louisville, has been experimenting with ways to get his message across. He wants more people to get involved in campaigns by limiting campaign contributions and moving election day to the weekends.

While Leichty knows he’s “rowing upstream against… virtually a tidal wave,” he still wants to make Grimes a better candidate by offering tough criticisms of her campaign issues and question answering skills.

Leichty is scheduled to debate Democrat Tom Recktenwald on KET’s Kentucky Tonight with Host Bill Goodman at 8 pm Eastern. Alison Grimes is not scheduled to attend.
