Grayson Files For U.S. Senate Seat

Kentucky Secretary of State Trey Grayson has officially kicked off his campaign for the seat now held by U-S Senator Jim Bunning, who’s not seeking re-election.  The Fort Mitchell Republican signed qualifying papers and paid the filing fee at the State Capitol Thursday and then met with reporters. “I’m running for U-S Senate because I think we need common sense solutions to restore some fiscal sanity to Washington.  We’ve got out-of-control deficits and runaway spending.  We live in a really dangerous world.  I think we’ve been reminded of that in the last couple of months.  And so I want to take some of the successes we’ve had here in Frankfort, with common sense conservative reforms, and try to get results in Washington in those areas,” he said.To date, at least three other Republicans are in the May 18th primary race with Grayson, including Bowling Green physician Rand Paul and Todd County businessman Bill Johnson.
