Chuck Todd: It Makes Him Sick To His Stomach To Be In An Ad For Mitch McConnell

Chuck Todd doesn't like that Mitch McConnell is using his comments from last week in his advertising, but thinks the Democrat Alison Lundergan Grimes brought the negative attention on herself by refusing to say who she voted for President in 2012.

The host of Meet the Press is sad that his face and comments are plastered all over ads for Mitch McConnell this week.

Chuck Todd, host of the popular Washington political show "Meet the Press," said Tuesday night he was sickened to be used in a political ad.

A new ad released Tuesday for Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) uses Todd's comments last week that McConnell's challenger, Democratic Senate candidate Alison Lundergan Grimes, "disqualified herself" by refusing to say if she voted for President Obama.

Asked his thoughts on being in a McConnell ad, Todd said on MSNBC, "Nobody likes — it's sick to your stomach to be a part of a campaign. I don't like being a part of it at all."
Grimes's refusal to say whether she voted to elect Obama, despite being one of his delegates in 2012, has been widely panned by Republicans and political observers.

"Kentuckians expect her to cast a tough vote on anything? Is she ever going to answer a tough question on anything?" Todd said last week on MSNBC's "Morning Joe."

"I think she disqualified herself. I really do," he added.
