Elizabeth Warren aims at Mitch McConnell by helping his rival

WarrenSen. Elizabeth Warren is going to lend some of her Democratic star power to Alison Lundergan Grimes in Kentucky — and get back at Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell while she’s there.

The Massachusetts senator said she wants to help Grimes, who is locked in a tight battle with McConnell, in part because he suggested holding a floor vote on Warren’s student loan refinancing bill was designed to help the Democratic Party’s election chances. (Warren’s bill was blocked Wednesday on a 56-38 procedural vote and did not advance.)

“One way I’m going to start fighting back is I’m going to go down to Kentucky and I’m going to campaign for Alison Lundergan Grimes,” Warren said during an MSNBC interview Wednesday night. “She’s tough, she’s feisty, she endorsed the student loan bill … So my view is I’m going to get out there and try to make this happen for her.”

Warren basically previewed one of her campaign messages, saying in the MSNBC interview that McConnell is “there for the millionaires and the billionaires.”
