Kentucky Attorney General Andy Beshear made a stop today. One day after announcing his intentions to run for governor in 2019.
Beshear spoke for about 30 minutes in front of a crowd of just over 60 people that gathered in front of Cherry Hall.
As expected, Beshear touched on several issues, like the opioid epidemic, limiting term limits in the state legislature, and education reform and the pension system.
Beshear told WNKY News that he'd like to expand gambling in the commonwealth, and then use those extra funds to aid the state's struggling public pension system. He has been upset by the quote "name-calling and bullying of the government", and says that is what prompted him to run.
Beshear also said that he plans on making several trips to Western Kentucky University and Warren County during the coming months of his campaign.
