  • Letter to the Editor - May 15, 2019

    Dear Editor:

     In the upcoming Republican primary for Attorney General, I give my full endorsement to Senator Wil Schroder.

    Wil and I have served in the Senate together for the last three years, and I consider him a friend and a trustworthy colleague. Together we have passed Pro-Life legislation and worked to make Kentucky a better place to live, work, and raise a family. Faith, family and freedom are not only the founding principles of his campaign, but they are the priorities of his life. Wil is the only candidate endorsed by Kentucky Right to Life.
