Kentucky Democratic Party

House Minority Floor Leader Rocky Adkins won Rowan County in last month’s Democratic primary election for governor with 89 percent of the vote. On Monday, he asked those voters to flip their support to the man who beat him statewide: Attorney General Andy Beshear.

Now, when Secretary Grimes points out the inaccuracies to protect Primary voters, it’s no surprise the Republican party runs to defend its politically motivated legislation.

“Does Ralph Alvarado stand with Lt. Governor Hampton or is he planning to let Matt Bevin undermine and bully him as well?”
