Grimes campaign stresses importance of quarterly campign-finance reporting deadline tonight

With the quarterly deadline for campaigns to report financial contributions, the Alison Lundergan Grimes campaign has been ramping up their fundraising efforts as the deadline nears. Sam Youngman of the Lexington Herald-Leader reports,"In the 72 hours prior to the midnight Tuesday deadline, Grimes sent at least 10 fundraising emails, some arriving in inboxes less than two hours apart." Youngman went on to quote a Grimes campaign email: "This deadline matters. After today, we'll make our final decisions about how to invest our resources and put ourselves in the best position to win on November 4th." Grimes has raised less money than Sen. Mitch McConnell, whose allies are on target to spend $20 million on his behalf.
