FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP/WPSD) - Kentucky Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes has announced she will run against Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell, ending the search by Democrats to find a competitive challenger ahead of next year's election.
David Ramey, Calloway County Democratic Chairman told WPSD Lundergan Grimes carefully considered if she could actually win against the five-term republican and announced when she realized she could. He said her popularity in the Purchase Area counties could mean the western part of the state could get quite a bit of attention from the candidates.
