Alison Grimes talks Ky. Derby, not much else

05/03/2014 04:30 PM

Aside from talking about her Kentucky Derby pick, Democratic candidate for U.S. Senate Alison Lundergan Grimes wasn’t eager to weigh in on much on Saturday.

“Today is a day we set politics aside and we focus on the greatest two-minutes of sports,” Grimes said.

She did partially answer a question about campaign finance reform, saying she would push for some reforms on the federal level. She didn’t say what kind of reforms she would prefer.

“We’ll leave that for another day,” she said before comparing her path to that of a Derby horse.
