Kentucky deserves a Governor who knows what a hard day's work looks like. Whether it was getting mud on my boots at the farm or teaching our next generations, I believe I will be that Governor. I'd be honored to have your support to bring conservative values like fiscal responsibility and government accountability back to the Governor's office in Frankfort.”
