Women’s Group Congratulates Kentucky Governor-Elect Andy Beshear

UltraViolet Action: “The Lesson of Kentucky is that When Democrats Run on Our Values – We Win”

Statement from Shaunna Thomas, co-founder and executive director of UltraViolet Action, a leading national women’s organization, on news that Kentucky voters have elected Democrat Andy Beshear as their next Governor:

“This morning, deep red Kentucky — Mitch McConnell’s Kentucky, Rand Paul’s Kentucky, Trump’s 30 point victory in 2016 Kentucky —  is waking up to having elected a proud pro-choice Governor. Voters in Kentucky did this despite a multi-million dollar blitz by the anti-choice movement in the State too.

“This is a huge victory for Kentuckians and the lessons of last night are clear: First, voters, in red and blue states, overwhelmingly reject the extreme policies of Republicans and their allies in the anti-abortion movement – who are obsessed with controlling our bodies and our freedoms. Second, that when Democrats run on, and not away from, our values – we win.

“Congratulations to Governor-elect Beshear on his hard fought victory. We look forward to more wins like this next year.”
