Kentucky Democrat Alison Lundergan Grimes refused three times to say if she voted for President Barack Obama in 2008 or 2012, pressed on it during an interview Thursday with the Louisville Courier-Journal editorial board.

“You know, this election isn’t about the president,” she said, calling herself a “Clinton Democrat” and adding that she was a delegate for Hillary Clinton in 2008.

Obama features prominently in the Kentucky U.S. Senate race as Grimes’ opponent, Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY), has consistently sought to link her to president, who is unpopular in the conservative state.
