Mitch McConnell's Democratic opponent takes a swing at Obama's new climate rules

“President Obama’s new [Environmental Protection Agency] rule is more proof that Washington isn’t working for Kentucky. Coal keeps the lights on in the Commonwealth, providing a way for thousands of Kentuckians to put food on their tables,” Mrs. Grimes said in a statement.

“When I’m in the U.S. Senate, I will fiercely oppose the President’s attack on Kentucky’s coal industry because protecting our jobs will be my number one priority,” said Mrs. Grimes, who serves as the Kentucky secretary of state.
