Lundergan is a former Democratic state lawmaker and chairman of the Kentucky Democratic Party. He has close ties to Bill and Hillary Clinton, both of whom came to campaign for Grimes during her failed 2014 bid to unseat Sen. Mitch McConnell.
Grimes is Kentucky’s secretary of state and is considering a run for governor in 2019. In a news release, she said she believes her father will be vindicated.
Veteran Democratic political consultant Dale Emmons was also indicted.
