Kentucky women to Mitch McConnell: 'Shame on you'

Kentucky women to Mitch McConnell: 'Shame on you'

Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) has grossly misrepresented his record on women's issues, according to a harsh new attack ad released Sunday by the campaign of his re-election rival, Alison Lundergan Grimes.

McConnell has fared relatively well among female voters, according to surveys of the race. And he last week released an ad casting himself as the better candidate of the two on women's issues.

Recent polls have shown Grimes close on McConnell's heels though, which would explain her campaign going after him so hard in the latest ad.
