Democratic congressional candidate Paul Walker is going on a 35-county 'Walking Tour' to speak with Kentucky’s first U.S. Congressional District.
Walker said he’s greeting people in the counties and holding town halls. He said he’s primarily focused in his campaign on accessible healthcare, education, and promoting favorable conditions for economic growth. Walker said he’s visited three counties so far and has heard a common concern.
“The tariffs are a very important issue and it’s clear that the farmers and other industries in this district are hurting from those tariffs," he said. "And even now the damaging effects of those is just the tip of the iceberg.”
Walker said job growth and the need for skilled workers in the district are also concerns.
This week, Paul is stopping by Lyon and Clinton counties.
