Republican Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., and Democratic challenger Alison Lundergan Grimes have wasted no time going after each other in the closely-watched Kentucky Senate race. Grimes has released two video ads and McConnell has released videos of his own while also challenging Grimes to three debates. Both candidates won their respective primaries easily on Tuesday and are already locked in a neck-and-neck Senate race that could determine the Senate majority for President Obama's final two years in office.
 
Coming out of his primary battle largely unblemished, Senate Minority Leader McConnell has already turned his attention to Democratic challenger Grimes in Kentucky's closely-watched Senate race. The Bluegrass State's election will have implications far outside the state. If McConnell wins, it could be part of a larger Republican movement that nets the GOP the six seats needed to take control of the Senate. If Grimes wins she will have knocked off a 30-year Senate veteran and delivered a huge blow to the GOP's hopes of a Senate majority.
