What’s next for Alison Lundergan Grimes? It’s a question some have been asking since the Secretary of State’s loss Tuesday night to incumbent Republican Sen. Mitch McConnell. A Bluegrass Poll taken a week before the election suggests voter enthusiasm is tepid with regards to Grimes running for Kentucky governor next year. The poll found 33 percent of respondents wanted her to run. Fifty percent did not and 17 percent said they weren’t sure.
Attorney General Jack Conway is the only Democrat to enter the race so far. Agriculture Commissioner James Comer and businessman Hal Heiner have entered the race on the GOP side.
