From 'Pure Politics': Grayson says he's 'getting ready' for 2011

09/22/2010 07:40 PM

Secretary of State Trey Grayson confirmed on Pure Politics that he’s most interested in running for the Republican nomination for attorney general in 2011 but won’t make a formal decision or announcement until after this November’s election.

He said part of the reason is that he wants to see the political fate of incumbent attorney general, Democrat Jack Conway, who is running for U.S. Senate. But he said more importantly he wants to talk it over with his family and is talking with prosecutors across the state as way of “getting ready” to run.

In an interview at cn|2 Studios, Grayson also talks about the U.S. Senate race and the election environment. And he provides his assessment of the differences between the way Republican U.S. Senate candidate Rand Paul is campaigning now against Conway and how he ran in the primary against Grayson.

Here’s the interview as it aired tonight on Pure Politics:
