Alan Keck now live streaming across all platforms to answer questions from Kentuckians
Kentucky GOP candidate for governor answers tough questions on abortion, lowering prison population, minimum wage and Donald Trump
SOMERSET, KENTUCKY (January 27, 2023) — Kentucky Republican gubernatorial candidate Alan Keck is now taking his live broadcasts across all of his social media platforms (Facebook, Twitter and Instagram) to answer questions submitted through his website from voters across the state.
And they led with tough ones right out of the gate: During his latest broadcast Jan. 26, the first question was about Keck’s stance on abortion rights, exceptions for abortion and women’s health. He also answered questions about whether he supports raising the minimum wage, how to lower the prison population and perhaps one of the most popular questions in politics — whether he supports Donald Trump.
Keck has positioned himself as the question candidate, intentionally seeking to answer any question submitted through his website, asked by the media or received at events he attends as he travels the state. He has answered 458 since he launched his candidacy on Nov. 21.
“One of the beautiful things about this campaign is that we’re willing to answer questions,” Keck said. “I think it’s important that Kentuckians know what I stand for and know where I am on the issues. But this also has a reverse effect: When I hear questions from Kentuckians, I then learn what’s important to them. And that is so important for any leader to understand.”
Live broadcasts have served as an effective tool for Keck during the last four years in communicating with constituents as mayor of Somerset. That experience was the genesis for launching these broadcasts for his gubernatorial campaign.
Keck also launched the second video in his Kentucky Talks interview series this week, where he interviews Kentuckians about the challenges they face, the qualities they want in their next governor and their dreams for the state. In the latest video, he talks with Pulaski County farmer Jeff Thurman about the rising price of fuel and its impact on Kentucky’s agriculture industry.
Kentuckians can submit their questions on Keck’s website, keckforkentucky.com, where they can also read more about the issues he wants to address as governor in his Game Plan for Kentucky.
Keck’s next live broadcast is scheduled for 9 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 9.
