Grayson's Rising Profile Could Be Political Boon
Frankfort, KY – Kentucky Secretary of State Trey Grayson takes over next Sunday as president of the National Association of Secretaries of State, a position that could provide helpful political connections if he decides to enter next year's election for U.S. senator from Kentucky. The high-profile role requires Grayson to spend more time in Washington testifying before Congress and urging federal lawmakers to act on initiatives important to nation's secretaries of state. That includes a proposal to overhaul the way presidential primaries are scheduled. University of Kentucky political scientist Stephen Voss says the job will give Grayson face time with Washington political leaders who could help in a potential Senate race.
