FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - The Kentucky Professional Firefighters Association has endorsed Democrat Alison Lundergan Grimes for U.S. Senate.

Grimes, the Democratic front-runner, received the endorsement on Tuesday. She is seeking to replace Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell who is running for a sixth term.

The firefighter group's president, Joe Baer, said his members are getting behind Grimes because they believe she has their best interest in mind, as well as the best interest of the people who depend on them.

Grimes faces Owensboro contractor Ed Marksberry, University of Louisville professor Greg Leichty and Louisville music promoter Bennie J. Smith in next year's Democratic primary.

McConnell faces Louisville businessman Matt Bevin in the Republican primary.
