    Moisture is the essence of wetness, and wetness is the essence of beauty. ---Derek Zoolander. The campaign of Alison Lundergan Grimes, who is running as the Democrat candidate for Senate from Kentucky, was in a rush to differentiate her from President Obama's new EPA regulations on coal. Apparently they didn't have time to check out the background of the "coal miner" whose picture they used in their initial newspaper ad run. It turned out that he was a European male model, hardly the coal mining type. The crew of Morning Joe had a good laugh featuring the model in his...

    With the EPA's proposed new power plant rules posing a potential threat to Democrats running in coal-reliant states, Alison Lundergan Grimes is fighting back early -- and fiercely -- by attacking the president and the EPA in a new radio ad, unveiled Wednesday. In the ad, which will air mainly throughout Kentucky's coal counties in the east and west of the state, Grimes takes President Obama to task for the new regulations on carbon emissions, which would be phased in over the next 15 years. "Mr. President, Kentucky has lost one-third of our coal jobs in just the last three...

    Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell's (R-Ky.) reelection campaign released its first attack ad against Kentucky Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes (D) on Tuesday. The ad, an auto-tuned clip that runs just short of two minutes, hits Grimes as a unready for the national stage and unnecessarily liberal.

    Actress Ashley Judd's name is being thrown out as a Democratic challenger to Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) in 2014. Rep. John Yarmuth (D-Ky.) listed her as a possibility. "If you had an Ashley Judd-McConnell race, I think it would be as high profile a race as Elizabeth Warren and Scott Brown," Yarmuth said in an interview with the Courier-Journal of Kentucky, referring to the Massachusetts Senate candidates. Judd has been active in Democratic politics. She was a delegate at the Democratic National Committee and also taped campaign ads for President Obama. McConnell has begun gearing up for his...

    FRANKFORT — The Executive Branch Ethics Commission has decided to take no action on a complaint filed by Bill Johnson, Republican candidate for secretary of state, over voter registration of homeless people. Johnson said Tuesday that John Steffen, executive director of the ethics commission, told him that the panel lacks jurisdiction to consider his complaint against Secretary of State Elaine Walker and the State Board of Elections. After the commission's regular meeting Monday, Steffen declined to comment on the case, saying the panel can comment on a case only when it acts on it. Johnson contended in his complaint, filed...
