KDP Chair Statement on Centre Debate

Following tonight's Kentucky gubernatorial debate at Centre College and Matt Bevin's statement that seniors receiving Medicare are "on the draw," Kentucky Democratic Party Chairman Patrick Hughes issued the following statement: 
"Matt Bevin's statement that Kentucky seniors who have paid into Medicare their entire lives and earned these benefits are 'on the draw' is wildly insulting. Tonight, Bevin blended fantasy, paranoia and his trademark chronic dishonesty — and in the process he proved exactly why Republicans called him an ‘East Coast Con Man’ and a ‘Pathological Liar.’ As Bevin’s campaign implodes, his unhinged behavior and blatant disregard for the truth are escalating. The contrast between the candidates was clear: Attorney General Jack Conway understands Kentucky, he’s delivered for Kentucky, and he has a plan to move the Commonwealth forward — which is why Jack is the only candidate that hardworking Kentuckians can trust to serve as our governor.”
