Alison Lundergan Grimes brings her jobs bus tour to western Kentucky. Grimes greeted folks in Henderson, Muhlenberg, Daviess, and Hopkins County today.

She talked about her jobs plan, and goal to strengthen Kentucky's middle class. Grimes says she's the only candidate in the race for U.S. Senate with a jobs plan.

We caught up with her at On Deck in Henderson this afternoon, where she slammed Senator Mitch McConnell for a recent article in which he was quoted saying creating jobs isn't his responsibility.

"Jobs are, unlike Mitch McConnell, my number one priority," said Grimes. "He said that it's not his responsibility to bring jobs to this state. I believe it's the number one priority of the United States senator."

The bus tour heads to Jefferson County Sunday.
