FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) -- Democrat Alison Lundergan Grimes is getting fundraising help from a big name in the entertainment industry, Jeffrey Katzenberg, chief executive officer of DreamWorks Animation.

Katzenberg, former chairman of The Walt Disney Studios, is promoting a series of fundraising receptions for Grimes in Los Angeles on Sept. 26.

In an email, Katzenberg introduced Grimes as the challenger to Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell in the most important election in the country next year.

Grimes entered the race as the Democratic front-runner after actress Ashley Judd decided against running earlier this year.

Grimes faces Owensboro contractor Ed Marksberry, University of Louisville professor Greg Leichty and Louisville music promoter Bennie J. Smith in the Democratic primary. McConnell faces Louisville businessman Matt Bevin in the Republican primary.
