What They're Saying About Bevin's Chamber Debate Disaster
Posted July 29, 2015
From Matt Bevin's cringe-worthy opening comments ("I'd have to kill you" before I tell you about my budget plans) to his snarling post forum press gaggle, at the Chamber Forum Bevin proved once again why Republicans labelled him an 'East Coast Con Man' and that he can't be trusted to tell the truth Kentucky.
See for yourself:

CNHI: "But when Alessi asked him directly what his top priority for that 11 percent would be, Bevin responded: “If I told you, I’d have to kill you. I’m not going to give you a specific thing and say this is the number one priority." [CNHI, 7/28/15]
Courier-Journal: "On early childhood education...Bevin questioned programs such as head start." [The Courier-Journal, 7/28/15]
