Kentuckians rejected anger politics and voted for four more years of proven leadership

After Governor Andy Beshear and Lt. Governor Jacqueline Coleman’s general election victory, Kentucky Democratic Party Chair Colmon Elridge released the following statement:

”Today, Kentuckians showed up to reelect Andy Beshear because they know he has shown up for them for eight years. For four years as governor and, before that, as attorney general, Andy Beshear has been a steady source of strength and leadership for the Commonwealth. He has led with integrity, hard work and hope, putting people above politics. Those are Kentucky values. Daniel Cameron by contrast doubled down on a vicious and extreme message that prioritized division over vision,” said Kentucky Democratic Party Chair Colmon Elridge. “Governor Beshear led the Commonwealth through unprecedented challenges into a booming economy with record job growth, while Cameron and his allies spent millions of dollars failing to communicate an actual plan or vision for Kentucky. I’m proud we re-elected a governor who fights for public education, has expanded access to affordable healthcare, and has brought good-paying jobs to Kentucky. Kentuckians rejected a message of fear and anger that told us to violate that most sacred golden rule, to hate one another, and instead decisively said they want four more years of moving this state forward while lifting everybody up. Tonight, we loudly said yes to the promise of hope and opportunity in front of us, and showed the country that message and Kentucky are worth fighting for.”
