Growing up here in Kentucky, Jim learned the values of family and neighbors. Living by the golden rule – treating others the way we wanted to be treated ourselves – is core to that value system. And Jim was fortunate to grow up in a time when the American Dream meant good paying jobs, opportunities for our kids and having a sense of security for our families’ future. Today, that dream is out of reach for too many. Throughout Jim’s life and career, he’s worked to create jobs and build new opportunities for thousands of Kentuckians. He’ll continue that mission as your U.S. Senator. That means waking up every day focusing on strategies that will build up middle class families and bring new business to every region of Kentucky.
