Adapted from Adam Beam of the Associated Press.

The father of Kentucky Secretary State Alison Lundergan Grimes has pleaded not guilty in federal court to making illegal contributions to his daughter’s 2014 U.S. Senate campaign against Republican Mitch McConnell.

Jerry Lundergan hardly talked at the short hearing in Lexington. His joint lawyer, veteran Democratic political consultant, Dale Emmons also pleaded not guilty.

A trial is set for Nov. 13, but Lundergan’s attorney said he would likely ask for a delay.

Lundergan is not allowed to leave Kentucky without permission. His attorney said Lundergan will need to leave the state for several weeks for his job. He owns a company that coordinates disaster relief efforts and needs to oversee the setup of emergency shelters because of Hurricane Florence.
