“I don’t know what the next step is for me, but I can tell you that I’m here tonight because we’ve done it together,” Grimes said at the Nelson County Jefferson-Jackson Dinner in Kentucky, according to local news site Channel 2.
“I look forward to what we will do together in the future," she added.
Lundergan Grimes also noted that it was important "to send the right people to Frankfort," and seemed to reference the voting record of both current Kentucky senators, McConnell and Rand Paul (R).
“It makes a difference as to who you send. For instance, if you send someone to Frankfort or to D.C. that votes against the Violence Against Women Act,” she said, and also noted what she called the value of organized labor.
Both Senators opposed VAWA.
Lundergan Grimes also cited advice her grandmother, who passed last year, gave her when she entered politics: "Alison, you might not know what the whole journey holds, but it shouldn’t stop you from taking the first step."
Both of her grandmothers featured prominently in an ad from her secretary of State campaign that received a positive response in the state.
