Gov. Beshear Earns Support from Dozens of Kentucky Law Enforcement Officials

Floyd County Sheriff John Hunt: “Governor Beshear’s work to pass pay raises, deliver more resources, and provide funding for training facilities throughout the Commonwealth are all evidence of his unwavering commitment to our law enforcement officers.”

Yesterday, Governor Andy Beshear held a press conference alongside members of Kentucky’s law enforcement community to announce their endorsement of his campaign for reelection. The bipartisan coalition, Law Enforcement for Beshear, includes dozens of law enforcement officials from across the Commonwealth, and represents the growing support and momentum behind Governor Beshear’s reelection campaign.

Last month, a coalition of coal workers, including the United Mine Workers of America and several leaders from Kentucky’s coal industry, came together to announce their support of Governor Beshear’s campaign for reelection, noting that he “understands that the coal industry creates good jobs for the people of eastern and western Kentucky,” and that under his leadership, Kentucky’s economy is the “strongest” it’s ever been.
