Clinton to make 2 appearances with Grimes

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - Former President Bill Clinton will make two appearances in Kentucky next week with Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Alison Lundergan Grimes.

Grimes' campaign said last week that Clinton would join her at a rally in eastern Kentucky but didn't announce where.

On Monday, the campaign said he would be at events in Lexington and Hazard on Wednesday.

Clinton, who twice carried Kentucky as a presidential candidate, appeared at a campaign event with Grimes in Louisville in February.

Grimes, who is trying to unseat Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, is the daughter of longtime Clinton friend Jerry Lundergan. She is in her first term as Kentucky's secretary of state.

Kentucky's Senate race is one of the nation's most closely watched, with the outcome possibly deciding which party controls the Senate after November.
