McConnell knows how to get things done in Washington

By ROBERT TEMPLETON Clinton

EDITOR:

For those who think we need change in Kentucky I would like to remind you that Alison Lundergan Grimes has supported President Obama since he first ran. She would be a sure vote for any bill he wants. Especially abortion and gun control bills. She will be obligated to vote as he says to retain support of him and his party.

Sen. McConnell has almost made a career of extending the life of the USEC plant in Paducah. He has consistently voted pro-life over pro-death. He has been a strong supporter of the right of the people to be armed by opposing gun control laws. On a local note, he was most instrumental in retaining the fishermen's privilege to fish below the dams in western Kentucky.

When we speak, Sen. Mitch McConnell listens. Listening is rare in politicians. It would be a grave mistake to change horses in midstream when he knows as well as anyone how to get things done in Washington.

If you are thinking of change then remember the last change we voted for. All we got was change then. Pocket change that is.

Sen. McConnell has always been there for us and it is time for us to be there for him.
