U.S. Senate Candidate Amy McGrath was in Paducah today to launch her new Paducah staff office location at 101 - 109 Broadway Street at the corner of 2nd and Broadway. The event was held at the Gazebo located directly across the street from Doe's Eat Place.
Campaign yard signs were on hand for those that wanted to support McGrath by placing signs in their front lawns or businesses. While waiting for the McGrath event scheduled to start at 12:30 pm CST, the announcement for the Breonna Taylor grand jury indictments were set for 12:15 pm today. For Kentucky, both the political race between McGrath and Senator Mitch McConnell and justice for Breonna Taylor are just a couple of passionate issues that could change the course of history for Kentucky and the United States.
Another important issue for all Americans is COVID-19. McGrath said, “We’ve lost 200,000 Americans which should make us angry. We’ve got to tackle the coronavirus.”
McGrath discussed social security, healthcare, and getting out to vote. She said, “We need to protect social security that working Americans paid for,” she continued, “Kentuckians shouldn’t have to work three jobs in order to make ends meet. You know that Kentucky can do better.”
Earlier today, McGrath visited Owensboro, Kentucky. She said, “I’ve been going around Kentucky, showing there’s another way.” One way is to get out and vote.
“How we win this thing is to get out our cell phone, text friends, and tell them to get out and vote. Tell people how to vote. They need to register by October 5 in Kentucky. Ballots must be postmarked by November 3. There’s no excuse why people can’t vote," said McGrath.
