KDP Chair: Bevin-Backing Kelly Craft Tries to Elect Another Anti-Public Education Extremist

Craft intends to be Bevin 2.0 with running mate pick

Kentucky Democratic Party Chair Colmon Elridge released the following statement on Kelly Craft’s announcement of Max Wise as her running mate:

“By already picking a running mate, Bevin-backing billionaire Kelly Craft confirmed on Wednesday she does not have the experience to run or serve as  governor on her own and that she intends to be Bevin 2.0 by picking an extremist who leads assaults on public education. Her new running mate, Max Wise, attacked our educators just this year pushing a bill that would have sent teachers to jail for simply doing their jobs. From gutting retirement pensions for hardworking Kentuckians to taking money out of public education to fund unaccountable, corporate-owned charter schools, Max Wise’s voting record checks every box in Bevin’s extreme agenda. From Matt Bevin to Max Wise, Kelly Craft has a history of trying to elect anti-public education politicians. Kentuckians didn’t want Matt Bevin, and they certainly don’t want Kelly Craft and Max Wise.”
