EDITOR'S NOTE: "The labor-hater and labor-baiter is virtually always a twin-headed creature spewing anti-Negro epithets from one mouth and anti-labor propaganda from the other mouth," Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. told the AFL-CIO convention in 1961. Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul is more proof, as if it were needed, that King's words still ring true.

Almost exactly one year after his bid for U.S. Senate came up just short in the Democratic primary, Charles Booker of Louisville formally launched his new candidacy for the office Thursday, this time hoping to unseat incumbent Republican Sen. Rand Paul in 2022.

Booker is scheduled to kick off his candidacy at a noon rally in the majority-Black West End of Louisville, part of the district he represented for one term in the Kentucky House of Representatives.

Notes From The Chair

Reflecting on the 2021 Kentucky Democratic Party State Convention, I am awestruck by how, over a year in the making, our staff and volunteers came together to do what to many seemed impossible. An all virtual state convention was something clearly not in the plans when planning began for the 2020 state convention. However, when COVID hit, the decision was made to postpone the in-person convention to begin planning an all virtual convention.
