FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) -- Actress Ashley Judd isn't the only one who has been in the political crosshairs of Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell.

His campaign has collected thousands of documents pertaining to Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes, a Kentucky Democrat considering running against McConnell now that Judd has decided not to.

The documents obtained by The Associated Press include travel invoices for Grimes and her staff, even reams of letters from people wanting to be Kentucky Colonels, an honorary designation handled by her office.

McConnell aides have been researching potential challengers ahead of next year's election.

Mother Jones magazine released a recording this week of a private meeting in which McConnell aides discussed using Judd's past bouts with depression against her. They also mentioned that they were seeking the Grimes' information through a third party.
