LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - President Bill Clinton stopped in Louisville Tuesday in support of Kentucky U.S. Senate candidate Alison Lundergan Grimes.

The Grimes fundraiser at the Galt House Hotel is Clinton's first stop of the 2014 election cycle. Grimes' father is a longtime friend of the former president.

Grimes, a Democrat, is running for the seat held by Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell, who is seeking a sixth term.

McConnell's strategy includes linking Grimes to President Barack Obama, who is unpopular in Kentucky. But Clinton carried Kentucky when he won the presidency.

The McConnell campaign says the Clintons have failed to help get other Kentucky Democrats elected.
