Democratic Senate candidate Alison Lundergan Grimes wants to debate Republican incumbent Mitch McConnell across Kentucky, and before an audience.

Grimes outlined her criteria for debates—and accepted McConnell's challenge for a possible debate series—in a letter sent Thursday to the Republican Senate leader.

Just two days into general election season, Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Alison Lundergan Grimes is facing a political dilemma regarding a proposed series of Lincoln-Douglas debates with Republican incumbent Sen. Mitch McConnell.

A day after the Kentucky primary election, Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell is challenging his Democratic opponent to a series of debates.

McConnell has notoriously avoided statewide debates with his past political opponents, so this eagerness may represent how close and high-profiled the Senate race will be this year.

In May 21 letter to Democratic Senate candidate Alison Lundergan Grimes, McConnell invites her to participate in three traditional Lincoln-Douglas style debates that would be moderated only by a single moderator.

Kentucky Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes says voter turnout in Tuesday’s primary elections isn’t likely to break 30 percent.

Grimes says the lack of a presidential race and the lack of a ballot initiative on local option sales tax will keep most voters at home on primary day.

Kentucky Secretary of State and U.S. Senate hopeful Alison Lundergan Grimes brought her ten-day, 50-county bus tour to western Kentucky Friday, where she hopes to energize the historically Democratic region into voting that way in November.

For the third time in as many months, leading Kentucky politicians find themselves addressing cockfighting.

A new federal case brings questions about the bloodsport to a top state Democratic lawmaker and puts the practice back into conversations about the U.S. Senate race.

Federal authorities filed charges against three Eastern Kentucky residents this week in a massive cockfighting ring run out of the Big Blue Sportsman’s Club in McDowell, Ky.

A statehouse staffer says there is a clear "war on women" being waged in the Kentucky legislature after a questionable decision cleared former state Rep. John Arnold of any ethical wrongdoing.

The scandal is also threatening to entangle U.S. Senate candidate Alison Lundergan Grimes, who is in a difficult spot due to her connections to state Democrats involved.

Republican Matt Bevin is a Heaven-sent choice for Kentucky voters in the upcoming U.S. Senate primary election.

That's according to conservative radio show host Glenn Beck, who gave a rousing speech at a rally for conservative grassroots  activists over the weekend.

Beck was the keynote speaker at FreePAC Kentucky on Saturday afternoon.

U.S. Senate hopeful Alison Lundergan Grimes described her jobs plan for western Kentucky last night in Hopkinsville. But while she touts the length and depth of her plan, some question just how much one senator can do for the Commonwealth.
