Sen. Elizabeth Warren to Raise Funds in Ft. Mitchell for Grimes
Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) will help raise funds for Alison Lundergan Grimes in Ft. Mitchell later this month.
Grimes is the Democratic nominee in a race in which she hopes to replace Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, the five-term senator from Louisville.
The fundraiser will be held on June 28 at the Iris Road home of Nathan Smith, a leader in the Kentucky Democratic Party and chairman of Attorney General Jack Conway's campaign for Governor in 2015.
"Our campaign welcomes Senator Warren's support as she champions relief for Kentuckians crushed under the burden of student loan debt,” Grimes campaign manager Jonathan Hurst said in a statement on Thursday. “As hardworking families across the Commonwealth struggle to make ends meet, college affordability is at the top of so many Kentuckians' minds. Unlike Mitch McConnell who votes against helping students at every turn, Alison Lundergan Grimes will stand up for every Kentuckian who dreams of obtaining a college degree."
A photo opportunity and private reception will cost donors $2,600, the general reception is priced at $500 and $1,000, and an evening reception is set at $250 and $100.
