Kentucky Sports Radio host Matt Jones announced Friday that he will not run for U.S. Senate in 2020, ending months of speculation over whether he would launch an outsider campaign with the goal of taking down U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

Jones, who had for months publicly waffled on whether to run, had laid out a political path of appealing to conservative University of Kentucky fans who listen to the show he built and see him as a friendly figure.

The path will remain unexplored.

Kyle Henderson, John Stovall and Dorsey Ridley are co-chairs of Gov.-elect Andy Beshear's Labor Cabinet transition team.

Beshear announced the whole team today.

It’s official. Andy Beshear will be the next governor of Kentucky!

We want to give Governor-elect Beshear and Lt. Governor-elect Jacqueline Coleman something special once they are sworn in. So we’re asking supporters to digitally sign a congratulations card that we deliver to the governor’s office after the inauguration!

“We are relieved to know that Governor Bevin has finally accepted the will of the people and decided to concede the race for governor. For educators across the commonwealth this means they truly made the difference in electing Andy Beshear as our next governor.

Take Action

Recently introduced legislation would provide needed protections for health care and social services workers from violence on the job. Tell Congress to support an OSHA workplace violence standard.
