The Lexington attorney is running against former Bowling Green mayor Elaine Walker for Kentucky Secretary of State in the democratic primary.
Grimes is the daughter of former Kentucky Democratic Party Chairman Jerry Lundergan.
She's a corporate attorney who believes she can promote business growth in the commonwealth and encourage more participation in the electoral process.
"I will preserve, protect, and promote all citizens' right to vote," says Grimes. "I will serve as an ambassador to business, encourage businesses to come here. Means more jobs at the end of the day, Gene, and a brighter future for Kentucky and its citizens."
Some big-name democrats are already supporting Grimes' bid for Secretary of State, including former governor and current state senator Julian Carroll, House Speaker Greg Stumbo, and Lieutenant Governor Dan Mongiardo.
