Grayson To Assume High Profile Post

Frankfort, KY – In November 2003, in his first run for public office, Trey Grayson was elected Kentucky's Secretary of State. He won a second term four years later. Throughout his tenure, he has been involved with the National Association of Secretaries of State in Washington and on Sunday, he becomes president of the organization. "I'm really excited to have the opportunity. It's an honor to be asked by my colleagues to do this."

Grayson wants to use the position to continue pushing for rotating regional presidential primaries, so states won't fight to be among the first to hold primaries, like many did last year. The position also raises Grayson's national profile at a time when the Boone County Republican is giving serious thought to running for the U-S Senate next year.
