In a case of unfortunate timing for Alison Lundergan Grimes, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid decided to double down on his attacks on coal during the same week where he helped pad Grimes’ campaign war chest. When asked about his infamous “coal makes us sick” comment, Reid claimed he still believes the use of coal is “a problem.” Wonder if his handpicked Senate candidate in Kentucky agrees?
As Politico reports:
“Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s 2008 comments that “coal makes us sick” have been a GOP talking point for the past six years — and the Nevada Democrat now thinks he probably could have worded his thoughts more eloquently. But he still believes the use of coal is ‘a problem.’” (Manu Raju, Harry Reid: 2008 Coal Comments Not Eloquent, Politico, 06/05/14)
