This was a dark week for Kentucky politics, as a group of protestors stormed the Governor’s Mansion and hung Gov. Andy Beshear in effigy. Jazmin and Robert talk through the protest that led to this event and the fallout stemming from it, in addition to other COVID-19 related news. Robert also told us about a probable special session which is necessary because of declining revenue forecasts in the road budget.
This week we interviewed Roberto Henriquez, an organizer with Indivisible Kentucky District 4, who is hosting a debate between the Democratic candidates for U.S. Congress this Saturday (Robert is moderating!) Mr. Henriquez is also a candidate for Kentucky House District 66, and we spoke with him about his race as well.
