Recently, Kentucky U.S. Senate candidate Alison Lundergan Grimes attended a New York City fundraiser with Michelle Obama and picked up her endorsement. In her remarks Mrs. Obama said that electing Grimes is “critical” to enacting President Obama’s anti-Second Amendment agenda.
There are tens of thousands of NRA members and Second Amendment supporters in Kentucky who deserve to know that Mrs. Obama believes that electing Grimes to the U.S. Senate is critical to enacting President Barack Obama’s gun grabbing agenda.
Excerpts from Michelle Obama’s remarks:
“And let’s not forget about that common-sense gun legislation, that so many of us feel so strongly about. Sadly as you know, that bill failed. Anyone know by how many votes? It failed by just six votes in the Senate. Six. So make no mistake about it: the midterm elections, they matter. They matter.”
Obama went on to say that said that people could make a “huge difference” in the Kentucky election by writing a “huge check.”
“And it’s simple, you can write a big ol’ fat check,” she said, to laughs. “That’s what we need you to do. Right now, write a big check, big huge one, write the biggest check you can possibly write.”

“So it is critical that we elect Michelle Nunn, Alison Grimes, Natalie Tennant. It is critical that we get them to the Senate….it is critical, because we all know that it’s not enough to elect Barack Obama President if we don’t give him a Congress that will help him…”
