Grimes to speak at Democratic National Convention
Kentucky Secretary of State Alison Grimes will speak at the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia next week.
The event will take place Monday through Thursday next week at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia. Grimes will take the stage on Thursday.
Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton campaigned for Grimes during her senate campaign.
Grimes reacted in a statement that reads:
"I’m grateful for the opportunity to represent our Commonwealth and the South at the Democratic convention next week. I’m excited to be on the national stage supporting a woman I’ve known for over two decades, a woman who is both a friend and a role model. Hers is a story that is inspiring not just to me but to all who share her values and respect her for the fights she has taken on behalf of all Americans.
Unlike what we have seen the past week in Cleveland, Hillary Clinton has a vision for a stronger, more unified America and I’m honored to be there for Hillary."
