Things are going from bad to worse for the Woman who Launched a Thousand Limericks, Roll Call reports:

The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee has gone dark in Kentucky, where the party is targeting Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell.

“The DSCC has now spent more than 2 million in Kentucky and continues to make targeted investments in the ground game while monitoring the race for future investments, but is currently not on the air in the state,” a DSCC official told CQ Roll Call.

If the guys at the DSCC had any wit, they’d refuse to say if they ever supported Grimes in the first place.
