Democrat Alison Lundergan Grimes’s campaign accused of trying to bribe opponent to drop out...

Well, Alison Lundergan Grimes is a democrat, but her campaign denies this is true.Grimes will face either Sen. Mitch McConnell or Conservative Matt Bevin.

Via The Hill:
A third-party candidate in the Kentucky Senate race has accused Democrat Alison Lundergan Grimes’s campaign of trying to buy him out of the race.

Ed Marksberry claims in a 15-page missive that affiliates of her campaign offered him and his campaign manager benefits in exchange for his full exit from the race. Marksberry dropped out of the Democratic primary last year to run as an independent after alleging the state party inappropriately favored Lundergan Grimes.

“We met and I was told that Alison’s campaign would like to ask me to consider stepping out of the race,” Marksberry wrote in the document, published on local political blog Page One Kentucky.
