RGA Statement on Kentucky Primary

Republican Governors Association Executive Director Phil Cox issued the following statement about the results of today’s Kentucky gubernatorial primary:

“David Williams’ victory is an important first step towards putting Kentucky back on the right track. David’s message of creating jobs, protecting the taxpayers, and standing up to the Obama administration resonates with Kentucky voters and contrasts sharply with Steve Beshear’s record as governor.

“Unfortunately, Steve Beshear’s time as governor has been marked by disappointment. He has repeatedly supported Barack Obama’s most wasteful policies and has watched Kentucky’s unemployment rate climb higher than in all its neighboring states. Kentuckians know they can do better than Steve Beshear.”
