Beshear Endorses McGrath in Senate Race
By West Kentucky Star Staff
FRANKFORT - Governor Andy Beshear has endorsed Amy McGrath in Kentucky's U.S. Senate race.

"In these uncertain times in our commonwealth, we need leaders who have the character and vision to lead Kentucky through this crisis and bring us out the other side stronger," said Gov. Beshear. "Amy McGrath embodies our Kentucky values of family, faith, service and caring for our neighbors, and I know those values will drive everything she does in Washington. She will fight for our teachers, protect Kentuckians' pensions, and work for Kentucky families. I'm proud to endorse her as the next U.S. senator from Kentucky."

McGrath said she is honored to have his endorsement.

In a statement, she said the election agreement between Republican Secretary of State Michael Adams and Governor Beshear is "an example of the kind of bipartisanship and compromise that helps Kentuckians." According to McGrath, she will bring the same spirit of bipartisanship to Washington in an effort to help uplift Kentuckians through equal access to education, health care, and economic opportunity.

"I greatly admire Gov. Beshear's strength, steady hand and unwavering commitment to doing what is right during this extraordinarily challenging period in Kentucky's history," said McGrath. "He is guided by his compassion for all his fellow Kentuckians—rural and urban, Democrat and Republican, old and young—and that makes him exactly the kind of leader we need to meet this moment. I'm honored to have his endorsement."
