GRIMES: We are traveling this state, kicking off today. This morning here in McCracken County, what will be 10 days, 50 counties of fun. Not just one of us, but all of us. We know Washington isn't working, and it's time that we put somebody there that can get Washington working for Kentucky. It's time we have a senator that believes as I do. It's a number one priority of a United States senator to look out for the hard-working people of this state and help to put them back to work. That's what this campaign is about.

MAN: ...the reason I support Alison Grimes. I'm looking for the opportunity for Kentucky to move forward in a positive way.

WOMAN: And Alison is just such a breath of fresh air. She can do it. I really think she can beat him. And that's what Kentucky needs.

GRIMES: And when asked what he's going to do to help put hard-working Kentuckians back to work, his answer: it's not my job to bring jobs here to this state. It's going to require a new face of leadership. Not the senator of yesterday but a senator for today and tomorrow. You think we can do it together?

MAN: I know we can.

GRIMES: I appreciate all your help. I ask for your vote and helping to get out the vote for our May 20th primary. But don't put those running shoes away because we are going to need them each and every day over the course of the next six months.

WOMAN: Good to meet you!

GRIMES: Give me that hug. Thank you very much.

WOMAN: You're welcome.

GRIMES: Thank you very much. You will make it happen again. Kentucky will finally get a fighter in Washington D.C. that will fight for the middle class. Together we will make history, and you will have your first female United States senator.
