FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) -- After weeks of coal criticism from Mitch McConnell, Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Alison Lundergan Grimes wants to change the subject.

Grimes' campaign announced Thursday a series of campaign events with U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren to criticize McConnell for blocking a bill that would have allowed college students to refinance their loans. The stops will include an event with students.

The McConnell campaign continues to pound Grimes for ignoring the coal industry in a speech during a Washington fundraiser. The campaign trotted out a Republican state senator and a Democratic mayor, both from coal mining counties, to say they don't trust Grimes after she had promised to use the fundraiser to demand Senate action on clean coal technology.

The Grimes campaign said Grimes had a private conversation with Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid about coal.
