Kentucky Democratic Gubernatorial Candidate Adam Edelen
Adam Edelen is running for governor of Kentucky. He wants to create more renewable energy jobs, is pro-choice, and has a lot to say about education in this country. Even if you don’t live in Kentucky, you’ll want to hear this conversation.
Adam joins Alyssa to explain why he prefers his tomorrows to his yesterdays. They discuss his background and what it was like growing up as the son of a tobacco farmer. He also shares his passion for education, his plan to create new jobs for those who are reeling from the loss of coal employment, and pledges that his cabinet will be made up of at least 50% women.
