Grimes touts her role as secretary of state in ad

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Alison Lundergan Grimes has released a new TV ad focusing on her roles as Kentucky’s secretary of state and as an attorney defending victims of domestic violence.

In the 30-second ad debuting Friday, Grimes touts her push for a state law that created a new ballot delivery system for military voters.

The law allows military members to receive their ballots by Internet but requires them to return the ballots through the regular mail.

Kentucky is home to two Army posts at Fort Campbell and Fort Knox.

Grimes also says she volunteered her time as an attorney to assist victims of domestic violence. She says she knows how to fight for people with "no voice" and win.

Grimes is challenging five-term Republican Sen. Mitch McConnell in November.
