Clinton to Campaign for Lunsford in KY

Senator Hillary Clinton (D-NY) will campaign for Kentucky Democrat Bruce Lunsford in the Bluegrass State on September 20th, according to a press release issued by the Lunsford camp this morning. Lunsford is challenging incumbent Republican Senator Mitch McConnell.

Lunsford, a successful Louisville businessman, is waging a vigorous fight against the scandal-ridden Republican McConnell, who has close ties to Big Oil and other corporate lobbyists. Just this week, McConnell was named as one of the twenty most corrupt politicians in Washington by the non-partisan group, Citizens for Reform and Ethics in Washington.

The Lunsford press release regarding Clinton's campaign swing in Kentucky reads, in part:

Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton will visit Kentucky on September 20th on behalf of Democratic Senate nominee Bruce Lunsford.  This will be Clinton's first trip to Kentucky since she won the Kentucky Democratic presidential primary on May 20th.  Senator Clinton will campaign for Lunsford in Pikeville and Lexington.

"I'm honored to have Kentucky's adopted daughter come back to Kentucky and campaign with me," said Bruce Lunsford. "Senator Clinton has a long history with Kentuckians and I anticipate her visit will go a long way to energize voters who want change."
