Fmr. Auditor Crit Luallen helping Grimes with round of robocalls

09/19/2014 04:51 PM

Former state Auditor Crit Luallen is helping the campaign of Democrat Alison Lundergan Grimes with a round of robocalls, an automated voice message supporting the policies of Grimes.

Luallen says the call is on the behalf of the Kentucky Democratic Party — who is helping run a coordinated campaign for Grimes.

In the robocall, which is going out to more than 100,000 residents, Luallen says she has spent her “entire public life working to make Kentucky a better place to live and to raise a family. That’s why I support Alison Lundergan Grimes for the United States Senate.”

Luallen goes on to promote Grimes’ jobs plan and her support of raising the minimum wage.

“Thirty years of Mitch McConnell is long enough. Alison Grimes is right for Kentucky. I urge you to join me and send her to the United States Senate Nov. 4,” Luallen says in the call.

The McConnell campaign declined to comment on this story.
