Democratic Senate candidate campaigns in western Kentucky

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Saturday, June 21, 2014 4:35 PM EDT

Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Alison Lundergan Grimes ventured deep into Sen. Mitch McConnell's territory on Saturday as she campaigned across four western Kentucky counties.

Like most of the state, western Kentucky has more registered Democrats than Republicans. But the area has frequently voted for Republicans in federal elections.

It was Grimes' second campaign swing this year following a 10-day, 50-county bus tour the week before the May 20 primary. She criticized McConnell for not doing enough to save jobs at the United States Enrichment Corporation plant in Paducah, which announced another round of layoffs on Friday.

A spokeswoman for the Republican Party of Kentucky said Grimes' trip would not be enough to convince western Kentucky voters that she would stand up for their values in the Senate.
