Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, Kentucky Republican, dissed Obamacare and his competition in the 2014 election on Monday — in rhyme.

“Twas the night before Christmas four years ago. Liberals wanted Obamacare, but Kentucky said no,” Mr. McConnell says in the ad.


Mr. McConnell released the ad that highlights issues with Obamacare, like the president’s false promise that people could keep their plans, as well as increased spending, higher debt and the president’s war on coal.

“So Obama wondered, ‘Who’s my Kentucky candidate for these times?’ And guess who it goes to? Alison Lundergan Grimes,” the ad continues.

“The differences are stark and your choice will be clear, but you’ll make your decision in November next year,” Mr. McConnell says in the ad. “So Merry Christmas and happy holidays to Kentuckians all. Especially Alison Lundergan Grimes, I’ll see you next fall.”

Charly Norton, a spokeswoman for Ms. Grimes, said Mr. McConnell’s “insurmountable disapproval ratings” show Kentucky residents are ready for a change in 2014.

“Kentuckians are tired of Mitch McConnell’s silly political games,” Ms. Norton wrote in a statement. “Our campaign looks forward to continuing to hold McConnell accountable as folks across the commonwealth unite around Alison’s campaign. The people of Kentucky are ready for a new senator in the new year.”

Ms. Grimes is a Democrat running against Mr. McConnell for his Senate seat. She is currently serving as Kentucky’s Secretary of State.
