Grimes, a Democrat, is in her first term as secretary of state and could seek re-election. Other likely offices she might seek include governor or attorney general.

Last year, Grimes unsuccessfully challenged Republican U.S. Sen. Mitch McConnell, who was elected to a sixth term.

The rally is at 12:30 p.m. EST at the Lyric Theatre & Cultural Arts Center.

The deadline to file for statewide office is 4 p.m. Tuesday.
