While the 2014 mid-term election is a half a year away, Kentucky voters will go to the polls this month for a primary election. On this week's show, we'll discuss the May 20 Primary with journalists covering politics in the Commonwealth.
Among the topics we'll discuss: The competition for the Democratic nomination for the Sixth District U.S. House; the race for the U.S. Senate seat held by incumbent and House Minority Leader Mitch McConnell; the Lexington Mayoral Race; and any other races of interest to our listeners.
Gov. Steve Beshear's campaign says the list of Republicans backing the Kentucky Democrat's re-election bid this fall is growing. But the man Beshear faces this fall says there are many reasons why some Republicans would be donating to a sitting governor's re-election campaign. On the day before Kentucky Republicans held their post-primary unity rally at GOP headquarters in Frankfort, Gov. Beshear's campaign released the names of 70 Republicans backing his re-election bid. Among the names was former lieutenant governor Steve Pence.
