Yes, There Are Democratic Alternatives to Alison Lundergan Grimes in tomorrow's Senate primary

DISCLAIMER: Yeah, in a fit of something I posted this a month early back in April, but now it's Primary Day Minus 1 for real, BEYOTCHES, so get yourself and everybody you know to the polls tomorrow OR ELSE.

Polls open at 6 a.m. tomorrow - Tuesday - and close at 6 p.m.  Acceptable ID include driver's license, Social Security card or personal acquaintance with an election officer.

My personal preference for the Democratic nominee for the U.S. Senate is Greg Leichty, who is somewhat less conservative than Alison, though I wouldn't call him liberal.

Neither Leichty nor the other Grimes challengers have a chance against the Big Dog's choice, but that's not the point.

The point of voting for someone else in the Democratic primary is to deny Grimes a primary landslide and call to her attention the tens of thousands of Democratic votes she's not going to get in November unless she stops running as a Mitch MiniMe.

Primary is 5/20; still a month to go.

I've met plenty of Democrats who are disappointed with Alison's platform and lack of explaining her issues while I'm collecting the 5000 signatures required to have my name on the November ballot. She has put herself in this box and will suffer in the general because of it!
