Kentucky’s 2014 U.S. Senate Race: McConnell vs. Grimes

The nation’s premier political race of 2014 played out in Kentucky, where U.S. Sen. Mitch McConnell successfully turned back a well-funded challenge from Kentucky Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes to become majority leader of the Senate.

The Herald-Leader’s coverage of the race was exhaustive, in-depth and ahead of the curve. Here’s a sampling of the campaign coverage I edited:
