U.S. Senate candidate speaks at local event

Posted: Updated:

With less than five months to go, Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Alison Lundergan-Grimes is in full attack mode against her opponent, Republican Senate leader Mitch McConnell.

Friday night Grimes was in Murray, speaking at the annual Jefferson-Jackson Dinner.

The event, thrown by the Calloway County Democratic Party, gave Grimes the change to speak in front of friendly faces, and shake the hands of potential voters.

The current Secretary of State says McConnell's tenure in the Senate shows "failed leadership" and that the republican party isn't a friend of the people.

McConnell's campaign released a statement before Grimes' speech, calling her "Obama's candidate" for Kentucky.

Grimes will be touring western Kentucky on Saturday:

9:45 AM – 10:30 AM: Citizens Bank -- 1522 Union City Hwy, Hickman, KY 42050

11:00 AM– 11:45 AM: Clinton Women’s Club (Public Library) -- East Jackson St, Clinton, KY 42031

12:15 AM – 1:00 PM: 51 Grill -- 464 US 51 N, Bardwell, KY 42023
