PHILADELPHIA, PA (AP) – Kentucky Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes has portrayed Donald Trump as “an unsteady, unqualified bully” while offering insights about Hillary Clinton’s personal side in a speech at the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia.
Grimes on Tuesday recounted her long friendship with Clinton, and stressed Clinton’s support for equal pay for women, voting rights, affordable health care and pensions for retired coal miners.
Grimes described Clinton as a family-oriented grandmother who enjoys watching HGTV and eating buffalo wings. She recalled how Clinton checked up on her while she was in law school and was the first to call her after her grandmothers died.
She portrayed Trump as “an unsteady, unqualified bully who points fingers rather than offering a hand to those who are defenseless.”
Grimes lost to Republican Senate leader Mitch McConnell in a high-profile race in 2014.
