Game Changer: Alison Lundergan Grimes



Growing up in central Kentucky, Alison learned the value of public service at an early age. As the youngest woman in the country currently serving as a Secretary of State, and as the only woman holding statewide office in Kentucky, Alison is an inspiration to women in Kentucky and across the country. Her campaign highlights the vital role that women play in politics and why we need more young women at all levels of government.


U.S. Senate – Kentucky – Challenger. Alison is challenging Republican Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, who has been a vocal opponent of the Violence Against Women Act, the Paycheck Fairness Act, the Lily Ledbetter Fair Pay Act, and legislation aimed at improving women’s health. Former President Bill Clinton is actively campaigning for Alison.


In 2011, Alison left her successful law practice to dedicate herself full time to serving as Kentucky Secretary of State.

Alison served as the President of the Fayette County Women’s Lawyer Association. As a lawyer, she provided free services to victims of domestic violence.

Alison has been endorsed by the Kentucky AFL-CIO and the Professional Firefighters Union.
