Grimes Courts Labor Votes With Senator Warren

The Democrat running for U.S Senate employed some star power in her attempt to unseat Republican incumbent Mitch McConnell.

U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren told hundreds of Kentucky union workers they will find no better fighter for America's middle class than Democratic Senate candidate Alison Lundergan Grimes.

Warren was making her second campaign stop Tuesday night for Grimes to help boost the Kentucky Secretary of State's bid to unseat 30-year-incumbent Republican Sen. Mitch McConnell. Wednesday, U.S. Sen. Heidi Heitkamp from North Dakota will campaign with Grimes in central Kentucky, which Grimes is promoting as a sign the women of the Senate are uniting behind her campaign.

McConnell campaigned in Campbellsville on Tuesday morning, where he spoke at a company that makes clothing for the military. Company officials said the company was in danger of losing its military contract in 2012 to federal prison workers until McConnell stepped in.
