The following video is probably the most revealing yet of Alison Grimes and what may be a hint as to her intentions, even though she hasn't given a decision on running to challenge Mitch McConnell for re-election in 2014:
LOUISVILLE, Ky (WHAS11) -- Alison Lundergan Grimes, the leading potential 2014 Democratic challenger to Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky), is acknowledging rumors of an imminent decision and says she "very watchful" of ongoing Senate issues, yet is not yet ready to announce whether she will enter the race.Note that Grimes says should I decide to get into this race and she exerted no hesitancy here.
In her first specific comments on what would be a priority for her if elected, Grimes singled out immigration reform.
"My hope is that our current senior senator will not block the efforts of the bipartisan work that the Gang of Eight is trying to do for immigration reform," Grimes said in an interview with WHAS11.
"As the issues are going on, especially the ongoing negotiations and meetings, (I) look forward to -- should I decide to get into this race -- having further substantive conversations with you about those," Grimes said.
With the U.S. Supreme Court striking down the most critical portion of the Voting Rights Act earlier today, now may be more important than ever for Alison Grimes to make her final decision on running for the U.S. Senate. She is, after all, Secretary of State for Kentucky.
