DCCC Statement on Elisabeth Jensen Primary Win in KY-06

From David Bergstein of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee:

“Congressman Andy Barr’s shutdown wreaked economic havoc on middle class families – but Congressman Barr showed his true, unapologetic allegiance to the Tea Party when he voted against re-opening the government and to jeopardize America’s full faith and credit.  As if that wasn’t bad enough, Congressman Barr’s job-killing, middle class tax-raising budget takes more money away from Kentucky residents in order to waste our tax dollars on handouts to the ultra-wealthy and corporations that ship jobs overseas. We are confident that Elisabeth Jensen will run an aggressive campaign to hold Congressman Barr accountable for losing touch with the people of Kentucky.”
