KDP Statement On Lt. Gov. Debate
Posted September 23, 2015
Following tonight's Lt. Governor's debate in the Kentucky gubernatorial race, Kentucky Democratic Party Chairman Patrick Hughes issued the following statement:
"There's no question about it -- Sannie Overly decisively won this debate. Tonight voters saw that Sannie Overly and Attorney General Jack Conway are the only team they can trust to lead Kentucky. Hampton refused to tell the truth about where she and Matt Bevin stand on critical issues or how their plans will hurt hardworking Kentuckians -- and she displayed the same kind of chronic dishonesty which has led Republicans to label Bevin an 'East Coast Con Man' and a 'Pathological Liar.' The contrast between the candidates was clear: Sannie and Jack understand Kentucky, they've delivered for Kentucky, and they are the only candidates we can trust to move us forward."
