2014 Elections May Center on Climate Change, Energy
We can’t let liberals choose the topics. Big government needs to be the target we go after.

As the 2014 congressional and senatorial elections near, one key issue that both sides are planning to capitalize on is the various candidates’ positions on climate change and energy.
Senate GOP Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), a prime target of the Democrats in their zeal to protect their majority in the Senate, is castigating Barack Obama for what is often termed Obama’s “war on coal.” McConnell is being challenged in the GOP primary and then must face Democrat Alison Lundergan Grimes, Kentucky’s Secretary of State. McConnell wants to link Lundergan Grimes to Obama and the Environmental Protection Agency’s proposed regulations that would harshly regulate carbon emissions from coal-fired power plants. McConnell notes that the regulations would hurt energy jobs.
Kentuckians for Strong Leadership, a super-PAC, ripped Lundergan Grimes with a radio ad stating, “Across Kentucky, thousands of coal jobs are disappearing. Obama’s war on coal is hurting whole families and communities. But Obama says he needs more allies in Congress to finish forcing his liberal agenda on our country. That’s why here in Kentucky Obama’s supporting Alison Grimes.”
