- A poll for CBS News, The New York Times and YouGov, taken Sept. 20 through Oct. 1, showed Sen. Mitch McConnell leading Alison Lundergan Grimes 47 percent to 41 percent, with 9 percent undecided, 2 percent for Libertarian David Patterson and 1 percent choosing other candidates. The stated error margin for the poll of 1,689 likely voters, taken online, is plus or minus 3 percentage points.
- A new television commercial from McConnell, using video clips of Grimes emphasizing her loyalty to the Democratic Party, strongly suggests that she would always vote with President Obama if elected.
- The National Federation of Independent Business has joined the list of lobbying groups running 60-second radio commercials promoting McConnell.
