BEATTYVILLE, Ky. (AP) — The Democratic Senate candidate in Kentucky, Alison Lundergan Grimes, is refusing to say whether she would have voted for President Barack Obama's signature health care law.

In an interview with The Associated Press, the Kentucky Democrat challenging Republican Sen. Mitch McConnell twice answered the question about her hypothetical vote on the 2010 law by saying she would work to fix its problems.

Kentucky's state-run health insurance exchange is wildly popular. But the health care law itself remains unpopular in the state.

The issue has hurt some Democratic candidates in other close Senate races. In Georgia, Republicans are attacking Democratic Senate nominee Michelle Nunn for not answering a question on whether she would have voted for the law Republicans call "Obamacare."
