The Kentucky Democratic Party is excited to announce the application for our new training program for prospective candidates and staff! READY 2 RUN is a training program envisioned to provide the building blocks to win Democratic campaigns right here in Kentucky.

READY 2 RUN will be led by three outstanding trainers discussing topics centered around messaging and fundraising, culminating in the preparation of a campaign plan. During the training, familiar faces from across the Commonwealth will be joining us for a variety of panels, including running in red districts and running as a candidate of color. Check out the full agenda here.

Our READY 2 RUN training session is tentatively planned to take place November 13-14* in Louisville! * In the case that COVID-19 numbers are still high, plans are in place to move this training over the span of several weekends.

Accepted applicants will be asked to reserve their seat with a $50 deposit that will be refundable after completion of the course.

Applications will close on October 15 at 6 pm ET / 5 pm CT. If you have questions, please email us at
