Kentucky Attorney General Andy Beshear took another jab at Governor Matt Bevin Friday, one day after scoring a win in their on-going battle over whether the state will discipline teachers for participating in “sickouts” that closed Jefferson County Public Schools six days this spring.
The political action committee for the Kentucky Education Association, the state’s teachers’ union and largest educator member organization, has unanimously endorsed Democrat Andy Beshear for governor.
Democratic candidates for constitutional offices in Kentucky are mounting a united offensive aimed at sending Republican Governor Matt Bevin and members of his administration home in November. Gubernatorial candidate Andy Beshear joined candidates for Treasurer, Auditor and Secretary of State Friday night in Murray for the annual Purchase Area Jefferson Jackson Dinner.
Kentucky Gov. Matt Bevin has joined 15 other states in supporting a Trump administration rule that would allow small businesses to sign up for health insurance plans that don’t comply with protections required by the Affordable Care Act.
The winning candidates for Kentucky governor drew just a fraction of the state's voters in party primaries this week, a signal that both have lots of work to do in what will likely be a brutal general election campaign.
