Democratic Senate candidate Alison Lundergan Grimes said Thursday that U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., will campaign in Kentucky against Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell [...]Today:
After the [failed student loan] vote, Warren told MSNBC's Chris Hayes, "One way I'm going to start fighting back is I'm going to go down to Kentucky and I'm going to campaign for Alison Lundergan Grimes."
U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren will campaign for Natalie Tennant in West Virginia next month in a push to keep a Democratic Senate seat.So it's only June, yet Elizabeth Warren has already announced campaign appearances in conservative Kentucky and West Virginia. You can bet that the Grimes and Tennant campaigns have tested Warren's appearances, and that they extended the invitation means the results were good—that Warren is more of a positive than a negative. The Grimes campaign has been particularly cautious, yet even they aren't afraid of Warren.
Warren will accompany Tennant in the Eastern Panhandle on July 14 as she rolls out an education agenda. Tennant's campaign provided trip details to The Associated Press.
Makes sense, since these midterms will be a base turnout year, and Warren has got that niche locked up. Furthermore, and related, Democrats will win if women turn out in droves, and yup, Warren helps with that, too.
There has been much energy spent trying to turn Warren into a boogeyman. This is proof that those conservative efforts have failed miserably.
