Spring in eastern Kentucky is one of the most beautiful times of the year. Every day the mountains get greener and the redbuds are in full bloom.
Traveling around the state is one of my favorite parts of campaigning.
This past weekend I spoke at the United Mine Workers retirees picnic.
Our mine workers literally helped to build this country and we need to do better by them.
In the richest country on the face of the earth there is no excuse that people are making choices between putting food on the table or getting needed medical care. The mine workers earned their pensions and we have to stand up for them and their families.
We are on the road every day this week and most days between now and Election Day May 21st.
