Former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright has endorsed Democrat Alison Lundergan Grimes in the Kentucky Senate race. Albright served as Secretary of State under President Bill Clinton. 

Meantime, Republican Mitch McConnell is calling on 2012 GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney to give his campaign a boost.  The Herald-Leader reports Romney will appear at a McConnell fundraiser October 2nd in Lexington.  

The former Massachusetts governor won Kentucky in 2012, picking up 60 percent of the vote.
