Kentucky Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes has been uncomfortable with supporting Obamacare during her bid to unseat Senator Mitch McConnell (R., Ky.,) but she thinks she’s found an argument she can make for the law.
WHAS reporter Joe Arnold was surprised by the argument. “She actually drew a link between the fatty foods sold here at the Kentucky State Fair and the need for seniors to have health care access,” he told viewers.
McConnell’s campaign used the comment as a sign that she’s a liberal Democrat.
Grimes refused to say if she would have voted for the law when it passed in 2010.
“I, when we are in the United States Senate, will work to fix the Affordable Care Act,” she told the Associated Press in May.
Grimes prefaced her donut burger comment by saying that she remains “troubled with certain aspects of the Affordable Care Act.”
