Candidates for Kentucky’s offices of governor, lieutenant governor, attorney general and agriculture commissioner were recently asked to respond to written questions from the Daily News. The general election is Nov. 3.
Candidates were given up to 200 words to frame their responses to each question about issues expected to be tackled in the upcoming session of the Kentucky General Assembly, including their state budget priorities.
The candidates also were asked to respond about the state’s role in granting marriage licenses in light of the U.S. Supreme Court ruling on same-sex marriage, what they thought about Kentucky House Speaker Greg Stumbo’s plan for expanded gaming and what plans they have for the state’s pension shortfall.
