Mitch McConnell's Senate race

Associated Press
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky speaks during the 133rd Annual Fancy Farm Picnic in Fancy Farm, Ky., on Aug. 3, 2013. The annual picnic at Fancy Farm always serves up a main dish of politics along with a side of delicious barbecue. And in 2014, voters will get a rare glimpse of Kentucky’s U.S. Senate candidates standing side by side as they face armies of hecklers trying to deflect them from their talking points. McConnell and his Democratic challenger, Alison Lundergan Grimes, will share the same stage for only the second time. (Stephen Lance Dennee/AP Photo, File)
