EDITOR'S NOTE: Overwhelmed by the flood of news stories and commentary about the coronavirus pandemic? Who isn't?

From BILL LONDRIGAN

Kentucky State AFL-CIO

When Mitch McConnell spoke at a Paducah Chamber Commerce feed on Tuesday, somebody in the crowd asked him what Senate Republicans would do if a Supreme Court justice died in 2020, leaving an open seat.

“Oh, we’d fill it,” he replied with a grin. McConnell’s response triggered predictable laughter from the largely Republican-leaning audience.

EDITOR'S NOTE: The Kentucky State AFL-CIO unanimously endorsed the Beshear-Coleman ticket. 

The Beshear/Coleman campaign is releasing a new video on social media today where Andy Beshear explains why the campaign for governor in Kentucky is about “right vs. wrong.”

Frankfort, KY - As Americans for Prosperity—a dark money group funded by the Koch brothers— is endorsing Matt Bevin today, the Kentucky Democratic Party is calling out Bevin for using his office to help out-of-state CEOs at the expense of Kentucky’s working families.

EDITOR'S NOTE: Want more proof--as if more proof were needed--that "principled politician" is an oxymoron when it comes to Mitch McConnell? You'd be hard pressed to find any Kentucky politician, present or past, who can top the Bluegrass State's senior senator in pure cynicism, unalloyed hypocrisy--and rank demagoguery to boot.
