Thayer and McGarvey will be featured on a Kentucky Politics: Post-Election panel with Jacqueline Pitts, managing editor of The Bottom Line, to discuss Kentucky’s new Democratic governor-elect Andy Beshear, the GOP victories in all other statewide elections, and what could get done in the 2020 legislative session with divided government.
