This week Matt Lehman joined us for an interview. He is running as a Democrat in the 4th U.S. Congressional District, which stretches from the area east of Jefferson County to Greenup County in Eastern Kentucky, along the Ohio river. He talked about what it takes to run for an office like this, the issues that motivate him, and talked earnestly about the danger of continuously electing Thomas Massie to the U.S. House.

Jazmin also explained the temporary injunction in the abortion ban lawsuit, which keeps the medical procedure legal in Kentucky while the lawsuit is ongoing. Robert talked about the end of Unity Aluminum’s (Braidy Industries’) attempts to build an aluminum plant in Ashland, and we brought back the COVID update.
