Unofficially the midterm campaign starts…..
Check it out:
In a campaign season where Democrats are fighting to hold on to their Senate majority, perhaps no race is as important or symbolic as the brawl shaping up in Kentucky between Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell and Democratic rival Alison Lundergan Grimes.
Labor Day is the unofficial kickoff of the midterm campaign season, but Democrats have been working long and hard to knock off McConnell — and prevent him from becoming majority leader.
By the time Election Day arrives, Kentucky could become the most expensive Senate race ever, surpassing the 2012 Massachusetts contest between Elizabeth Warren and Scott Brown. That race saw a record $82 million spent. In Kentucky, that number, by some estimates, could reach $100 million.
