Alison Lundergan Grimes, who is running for U.S. Senator, has been distancing herself from the president in order to appeal to the coal industry, gun owners, and other interests in the state of Kentucky.
Her concern for the coal industry is necessary, with 15,000 jobs on the line. However, some feel she has moved too far to the right on too many issues, and she has been distancing herself from the president. It seems that some Democrats on the national level may be getting alienated.
Recently she dodged a question about whether or not she voted for President Obama.
