LOUISVILLE, KY (AP) - U.S. Senate candidate Alison Lundergan Grimes is getting help from another Clinton - this time from Hillary Rodham Clinton.
The Kentucky Democrat's campaign says the former U.S. secretary of state and potential presidential candidate in 2016 will campaign for Grimes next Wednesday night in Louisville. Grimes spokeswoman Charly Norton said Friday the event is open to the public, and free tickets will be available at Democratic headquarters in all 120 Kentucky counties.
Clinton's husband, former President Bill Clinton, has made two trips to Kentucky this year to makes pitches for Grimes in Louisville, Lexington and Hazard in eastern Kentucky. Bill Clinton carried Kentucky both times he won the White House in the 1990s.
Grimes is challenging Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell in one of the nation's mostly closely watched campaigns.
