Tamera Sanford is worried about more than Donald Trump’s taxes.

“I do not like what’s going on with North Korea,” she said. “I’ve got a 21-year-old son at the University of Louisville,  and I’m afraid he might be drafted.”

Sanford, from Florence, was among an estimated 400 people who showed up for Saturday’s Tax Day March rally at the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Plaza in downtown Louisville.

This just in from Daniel Lowry at the Kentucky Democratic Party: 

We just wanted to make sure you saw Sannie’s note last week inviting you to join Bernie Sanders and DNC Chair Tom Perez in Louisville TOMORROW

Will you be there? RSVP to get your ticket!

We’re excited to come together with our fellow Democrats!

See you tomorrow

Derek Penwell looks like he might ride with Bikers for Trump.

He sports a gray-streaked beard and ponytail. His biceps are tattooed.

Penwell is a Disciples of Christ pastor in Louisville, Kentucky’s largest city. His theology hearkens to Walter Rauschenbusch who helped lead the old liberal and reformist Social Gospel movement.

EDITOR'S NOTE: Tim Donoghue, president of the Northern Kentucky Central Labor Council, left, and Jim Cole of IBEW Local 212 attended the rally in Cincinnati.
