To be delivered to: Democrats!
Mitch McConnell has hurt ALL Americans, not just Kentuckians. That's why we are calling on all Americans to help us defeat Mitch McConnell in 2014. We need your support, your ideas, your energy, and your enthusiasm to elect a new senator from Kentucky!
Replacing Mitch McConnell isn't going to be easy. He has been in the Senate for 28 years. Two years out from the election his campaign war chest is already at $7 million. He is the most powerful Republican in the country and his history of nasty, scorched-earth campaigning gives pause to many potential challengers. But we can't let his kind of tactics win again. Not now when the stakes are so high.
A lot of people think McConnell is unbeatable. But that isn't actually the case.
Kentucky has 511,000 more registered Democrats than Republicans and regularly votes Democrats into statewide office. In 2011, the state re-elected Gov. Steve Beshear, a Democrat, by a wide margin. Recent polling showed that Mitch McConnell is the most unpopular senator in the whole country.
Democrats can win in Kentucky. With support from people like you, we are going to elect a new Senator in 2014.
All the best,
Keith, Shawn, Curtis, Doug, Patty, and the rest of the team at Progress Kentucky.
