Standard's Fred Barnes: Alison Lundergan Grimes Is History

By    |   Tuesday, 14 Oct 2014 07:15 PM

Alison Lundergan Grimes is toast now that the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee has stopped running TV ads in Kentucky's U.S. Senate race, says Fred Barnes, co-founder and executive editor of The Weekly Standard.

"It says to me that [Sen.] Mitch McConnell is going to be re-elected probably fairly easily," Barnes said Tuesday on "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV.

The yanking of ads came after Grimes twice repeatedly refused to answer whether she voted for President Barack Obama — apparently in a bid to steer clear of his waning popularity.

"She turned out to be a very poor candidate, and this notion that somehow you're right to not say how you vote," Barnes said.

"Her argument just falls apart, it's ridiculous, and it hasn't helped her because everybody knows she voted for Obama, she was an Obama delegate . . . What in the world is the matter with her?

"So, look, I'm not surprised. This is the time when a party pulls out of races that they think they can't win and puts the money in races mainly to defend incumbents that they think they can still squeak to victory."

Barnes is author of "The Rebel in Chief: Inside the Bold and Controversial Presidency of George W. Bush," published by Three Rivers Press.
