In ‘Clinton country,’ former president rallies Democratic faithful for Grimes | Politics and Government | Kentucky.com
LOUISVILLE — Former President Bill Clinton declared “I love Kentucky” on Tuesday as he took the stage to a standing ovation from about 1,100 Democrats at a fundraiser for U.S. Senate candidate Alison Lundergan Grimes.
“You’ve been good to me,” Clinton said, noting that the Bluegrass State voted for him both times on his way to the White House in 1992 and 1996.
Grimes returned the love as she spoke before the former president and longtime family friend, declaring that Kentucky is “Clinton country.”

Clinton drew 1,200 supporters to a sold-out Tuesday fundraiser in Louisville for Grimes, who is working to unseat Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) in a top-targeted race this cycle.
During the fundraiser, Clinton and Grimes both drew parallels to Clinton’s time in office during the 1990s, in a polarized political culture that a struggling economy helped stimulate.

Continuing to hammer away at Bill Clinton, Rand Paul says Kentucky Senate candidate Alison Lundergan Grimes should be embarrassed to be seen with the former president.
