Grimes' Grandmothers Back in Action in Web Video

Jul 26, 2013

The grandmothers who starred in a TV ad that helped Democrat Alison Lundergan Grimes win a race for secretary of state two years ago are back for her U.S. Senate race.

They gave television viewers in Kentucky a chuckle in 2011 with a clever ad portraying them writing a script and asking: "What rhymes with Alison Lundergan Grimes."
Since then, one of the grandmothers, Thelma Lundergan McHugh, died. But a clip from the past ad is included in a new online video. The other grandmother, Elsie Case, is in the video asking: "What rhymes with Mitch?"
Grimes points remarks directly at Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell, whom she's seeking to replace, saying she doesn't scare easily. At that point, McHugh shows up with her computer, saying, "And neither do I, Senator."
