Alison Lundergan Grimes hangs on for re-election as Kentucky secretary of state

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) -- Democratic incumbent Alison Lundergan Grimes hangs on for re-election as Kentucky secretary of state.

Grimes won a second term a year after her unsuccessful bid to unseat Republican Sen. Mitch McConnell, now the Senate majority leader. Grimes' opponent was Steve Knipper, a former city council member in Erlanger. The secretary of state's campaign was largely low key.

Knipper criticized Grimes for running for the Senate in the midst of her term as secretary of state. Grimes pointed to her record since taking office. She said she pushed for several voting access improvements in the legislature and led an upgrade of the state's online business portal.
