Ky. Senate candidates make final push on election eve

Posted: Updated:
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Senator Mitch McConnell is spending Monday making a final blitz across the state.

McConnell held his final Louisville rally at Bowman Field Monday morning before boarding a plane for one last fly-around the state.

McConnell was joined by his wife, former labor secretary Elaine Chao, and Kentucky's junior senator, Rand Paul.

Their closing message was the same as it has been this entire campaign: that the election is about President Obama and his policies. His opponent, Alison Lundergan Grimes, was not mentioned.

"We know that this President has not been a friend to Kentucky," said Paul during Monday's rally. "(He has) not been a friend to Kentucky coal, not been a friend to Kentucky jobs. And we know that this election will send a clear cut message that the Republican way is the way we will create jobs in Kentucky."

McConnell said that six years of "borrowing and spending and taxing and regulations" is enough and that "these people need to be stopped and it starts tomorrow night!'

Grimes is also flying around the state today, including a stop in Louisville this afternoon. Over the weekend she held rallies in Lexington and northern Kentucky with Hillary Clinton.

All the polls now show McConnell leading this race, but it may come down to turnout.

Both sides have extensive get-out-the-vote operations.
