After expensive Senate campaign, Grimes goes back on the air

Judge refuses to temporarily block new election-related law

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) – Alison Lundergan Grimes is back on TV for the first time since her 2014 race against Republican U.S. Sen. Mitch McConnell shattered state spending records.

The Democratic Secretary of State has a new 30 second TV ad out Tuesday morning to support her re-election campaign. In the ad, Grimes speaks directly into the camera saying the last few years have been “noisy” in Kentucky, a reference to the hundreds of millions of dollars’ worth of ads by her and about her that aired during the 2014 campaign.

Grimes said her job as Secretary of State is to “make sure your vote is counted” and calls it “a job I love.” Grimes is seeking a second term. She faces Republican challenger Stephen Knipper in the Nov. 3 general election.
