U.S. Senator Rand Paul


  The Kentucky legislature won’t meet this week due to a series of winter storm events across the state.


  This week in Kentucky politics, Rand Paul urged state lawmakers to pass a mysterious bill that would change the election system. The debate over historical horse racing machines divided Republicans in the legislature. And criminal justice reform bills have been gaining momentum in the statehouse.

  Three Kentuckians spoke during the Republican National Convention on Tuesday including Attorney General Daniel Cameron, who praised President Donald Trump and criticized protests that have erupted around the country in recent months.

Cameron is the first Black person elected to statewide office in Kentucky on his own ticket, and is currently investigating the death of Breonna Taylor, a Black woman and emergency room technician killed by Louisville police in March.

During his speech, Cameron criticized “the politics of identity, cancellation and mob rule.”
