“Today is a big day for Kentucky, Ohio, and the United States of America. We’re showing what happens when you push partisanship and division aside,” said Gov. Beshear. “People have been talking about building the Brent Spence companion bridge — companion bridge that runs from Cincinnati to Northern Kentucky — for decades. Multiple presidents have talked about it. And yet today, we are getting it done.”
“The governor’s election isn’t about who is in the White House, it’s about what is going on in your house,” Gov. Beshear also added: “It is those types of basic concerns that you should run for these jobs to address. And that is what we not only talked about in my campaign, but that’s what we’ve been doing.”
Time after time, Gov. Beshear has put working families first and worked across the aisle to deliver big solutions for Kentuckians, like landing historic economic developments, lowering the cost of prescription drugs, and raising pay for state troopers, all while guiding the Commonwealth through devastating natural disasters.
