My Old Kentucky Podcast

Michael Bowman, Amy McGrath Declares, Marsy’s Law Update, Coal Politics, + More!

July 10, 2019

We are excited to be back after a week off!  In this week's episode, we spoke with Michael Bowman, the Democrat running for Treasurer.  He told us why he wants to be Treasurer, what he would do with the position, and the keys to his big victory in May.  We also talked a bit about campaigning in Kentucky and what he's learned on the trail this year.

We also talked a bit about the first day of Amy McGrath's campaign to take on Mitch McConnell, a new petition to SCOKY about Marsy's Law, an attempt by some in the GOP to take out Thomas Massie, and some stories involving coal politics in Eastern Kentucky: Gov. Bevin's promise to give coal counties 100% of coal severance tax revenue, and the bankruptcy of Blackjewel.  Plus, more!
