Democrat Alison Grimes has joined Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell in urging the Tennessee Valley Authority to keep a coal-fired generating plant operating in western Kentucky.

Grimes says the Paradise Fossil Plant at Drakesboro could be brought into compliance with federal standards, while closure would have a devastating economic impact.

McConnell met with TVA President William Johnson last week to seek continued operation of the generating plant.

TVA said in a statement last week that officials are "evaluating all options."
