FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has hired a veteran of Alison Lundergan Grimes’ 2014 Senate run to lead her Kentucky campaign ahead of next month’s presidential primary.

The Clinton campaign has hired Elizabeth Cantrell Brooks as their state director ahead of the May 17th Kentucky presidential primary. Brooks worked for Grimes’ unsuccessful Senate campaign and was the campaign manager for state Rep. Lew Nicholls’ successful special election for the House of Representatives last month.

The campaign also hired former Kentucky Democratic Party Political Director Christian Motley, who also worked for former Democratic Gov. Steve Beshear’s 2011 re-election campaign. Other hires include Communications Director Tim Hogan and Organizing Director Justin Vollmer.

Clinton and Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders are battling for the Democratic nomination. Clinton won the New York primary on Tuesday.
