Half of all the Democratic women in the U.S. Senate are featured in a new video voicing their support for Kentucky Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Alison Lundergan Grimes.
The video, released Thursday after first being shown at Grimes’ event with Hillary Clinton Wednesday evening, shows six women in the U.S. Senate saying “Shatter the glass. Break the ceiling. It’s time for Alison!”
Of the twelve women in the Senate Democratic caucus, U.S. Sens. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), Tammy Baldwin (D-WI), Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY), Heidi Heitkamp (D-ND), Patty Murray (D-WA), Mazie Hirono (D-HI), Maria Cantwell (D-WA) and Debbie Stabenow (D-MI) are shown saying the phrase as well as other women at a campaign rally saying the same thing.
“You send us Alison Grimes instead of Mitch McConnell and you change the world,” Sen. Warren says, in the video from her visit to Kentucky to campaign with Grimes.
In a press release attached to the ad, the Grimes campaign said that it is the women of the U.S. Senate coming together to pass commonsense measures, adding that Grimes will join them in the effort when she goes to Washington.
