LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) – Senate candidate Alison Lundergan Grimes is getting some big time Hollywood heavyweights to help her in bid to unseat Senator Mitch McConnell.

Dreamworks executive Jeffrey Katzenburg, a major entertainment powerbroker, is urging his allies to support Grimes at a fundraiser in Los Angeles September 26.

In the e-mail invite, Katzenburg calls the Kentucky race a pivotal election that can get the Senate working again.

A McConnell spokesperson says it’s no surprise that Obama’s liberal Hollywood friends are supporting Grimes’ campaign against Mitch McConnell.
