A man of integrity, with deep experience of accomplishments in government and deep roots in the Second Congressional District, the area he has already spoken for in both the legislative and executive branches of Kentucky State Government.

Change that affects our resources and empowers our dreams. Change that calls for more education and education that is within reach of all. Our Second District
