Kentucky Secretary of State/U.S. Senate

A conservative group is running a pre-emptive television ad attacking Democrat Alison Lundergan Grimes, who is pondering a possible campaign against Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell.

The ad links Grimes to President Barack Obama by calling her the president's "cheerleader" in Kentucky.

Former Democratic Governor  John Y. Brown Jr., is disappointed with President Barack Obama's job performance and is criticizing the national party for "acting like socialists" over free enterprise.

Brown served as Kentucky's governor from 1979 to 1983, and is successful businessman and a revered patriarch among state Democrats past and present.

In an interview with Pure Politics, Brown said Mr. Obama doesn't understand the economy and is more interested in "taking care of people instead of taking care of our Constitution" and getting people back to work.

Congressman Ben Chandler is joining a handful of prominent Democrats who will skip their party's national convention this year.

Governor Steve Beshear is adding his voice to one of President Barack Obama's top campaign issues. The president spoke at two college campuses this week urging Congress to prevent an automatic rate hike in interest on student loans from taking effect. Now, Beshear has penned a letter to all six members of Kentucky's Congressional delegation asking for them to block the increase. Beshear says if the rate hike goes into effect it will add an average of $940 to each student loan every year. The rate hike will affect more than 100,000 Kentucky students.
