Republicans are apparently so worried about the race for attorney general that they have gone further into the gutter with their attacks – including sending a slime piece to a candidate’s wife.

This is it. Election Day is next Tuesday. Our families have so much riding on this election. Make no mistake, this election will impact every working family, including yours.

Election Day is just a week from today. Click https://youtu.be/bz8M6hXh7WU to watch a short video in which Bill Finn, state director of the Kentucky State Building and Construction Trades Council, explains why voting is crucial to your family, your job and your union.

Frankfort, KY — At the third governor’s debate on Saturday night, Matt Bevin delivered a disastrous performance and was repeatedly caught in lies, before storming out of the debate and refusing to take questions from reporters.

At a time when our commonwealth faces critical issues — chief among them a deadly opioid epidemic and growing meth crisis that have devastated countless lives — Kentucky needs an attorney general who has the experience, proven track record and knowledge to fight for our families and our commonwealth.

We need a chief prosecutor who has successfully battled in and out of the courtroom, confronted crime and corruption and advocated for Kentucky residents.

To me, a public servant has a simple definition: see a wrong, right it.

Want a specific example of that when it comes to Kentucky's attorney general? Because I've got a big one.

A heinous crime has happened. And when survivors had the courage to come forward, Kentucky law told them that our compassion only runs so deep.
