Warming Up to West Louisville

When Bruce arrived at the West Louisville campaign headquarters on Broadway for his seventh Bluegrass Barbeque, it was cold and windy.  But the wintry breeze did little to cool the enthusiasm of more than 250 supporters who braved the chill to shake hands with the candidate for governor and bend his ear a bit.

It was an old-fashioned front-porch political talk, as Bruce spoke for about 15 minutes about his plans for change in state government, discussing his Blueprint for Change – The Plan to Get Kentucky Back in Business.
 
Afterward, he shook hands and talked with Democratic voters on the porch (the campaign HQ is in a shotgun house) and spoke one-on-one with folks for a couple of hours. 

Clarence Yancey, the campaign’s organizer for West Louisville, spent his time going back and forth from the train-shaped barbecue grill to greeting folks who came from all over the neighborhood. If you are in the West End, stop on by our HQ and say hi. 

While Yancey's world-famous barbeque was pretty popular, lots of people also came by to pick up a yard sign to proudly display their support for the Lunsford-Stumbo ticket.

This week, there’s a barbecue in Covington on Monday at the American Legion, and another in Hopkinsville on Saturday.
