Wednesday's stop-the-shutdown rally in Lexington attracted wall-to-to-wall media attention

Wednesday’s “Demand Mitch McConnell #CallTheVote and #StopTheShutdown” rally at his posh Lexington office attracted a platoon of TV and newspaper reporters. 

The protest, which lasted about an hour, was co-sponsored by the American Federation of Government Employees, the Kentucky State AFL-CIO and the Greater Louisville Central Labor Council. Several union members and supporters showed up from Louisville, southern Indiana and central Kentucky.

Many rode chartered busses from Jeffersonville, Ind., and Louisville.

The rally began in a midday downpour and a stiff breeze. The elements dampened the protesters but not their ardor.
