Doing homework before voting

NEWS:  Election season is upon us and the Kentucky senatorial race is taking center stage.  On the
republican side are: Senator Mitch McConnell and Matt Bevin.  The main democratic candidate is current KY Secretary of State Alison Grimes.  Sen. McConnell has been a politician for 30 years.  If you think that much Washington experience is good then that is a plus for the senator.  If you are for term limits and opposed to lifetime politicians that is a reason to replace him.  (Click here for a CNN article about the McConnell campaign's recent scandal.)
WHAT YOU CAN DO ABOUT IT:  Don't just read the political mail you receive and believe it.  The info presented can be spun to say nearly anything.  Instead, do some homework on each of the candidates.  A good place to start is by visiting their websites.  Click on a candidates name to visit their website:  Mitch McConnell    Matt Bevin   Alison Grimes.
