MCCRACKEN COUNTY, Ky. - Alison Lundergan Grimes has been making her way across the state since launching her campaign on Tuesday. Thursday night brought her to the Annual Alben Barkley Dinner. 

Kentucky Attorney General Jack Conway, Auditor Adam Edelen, and Treasurer Todd Hollenbach were all there to show support and help rally local democrats.

Lundergan Grimes also brought her grandmother on stage and talked about the influence she had on her as she grew up. She talked about having to compromise with her four sisters and how that compromise would help her in Washington D.C.

She distanced herself from President Obama in the issue of coal and talked about his health care program needing some changes. But she spent a lot of her time talking about what's wrong with Mitch McConnell and why he's the wrong person to represent Kentucky.
"I will do as I've done as Secretary of State and I will work for you," she said in her speech.

Lundergan Grimes' next speaking appearance will be at the Fancy Farm Picnic on Saturday.
