Booker brand GOP Sen. Rand Paul as ‘barrier’ to progress

Democrat Charles Booker blasted Republican Senator Rand Paul as a “barrier” to progress Monday night when he gave a presentation to Kentucky voters in a solo state television appearance.

Booker, a former state lawmaker, touted his plans to expand access to healthcare, vigorously defended his support for abortion rights and said policymakers must deal with the “climate chaos” he has linked to monstrous storms hitting Kentucky. and other parts of the country.

With about a month to go before the fall campaign, the Democratic challenger had the stage to himself during the candidate’s half-hour show on Kentucky Educational Television. Paul, who is seeking a third term in the Senate, was invited to debate Booker but did not participate.

Booker took advantage of the monopoly at the time, saying that Paul “turned his back” on voters.

“He voted against expanding health care,” Booker said. “He voted against infrastructure. He voted against local governments. It has been our barrier and we need to remove it so that we can earn our future.”

Booker, best known for his “screaming hood” theme in hopes of forging an urban-rural coalition, said he has won popular support from people who have been ignored, marginalized and abandoned.

“This isn’t about partying,” he said. “This is about humanity.”

Booker also addressed the issue of climate change in coal-producing Kentucky.

“These historic and unprecedented storms – with a 1,000-year-old flood that hit communities that have never been on a floodplain – these things are not random,” he said. or a joke like Rand Paul would.”

Parts of eastern Kentucky were inundated by historic flooding this summer.

Kentucky hasn’t elected a Democrat to the US Senate in three decades. Harnessing the power of the errand, Paul has amassed a lopsided fundraising lead over Booker, and the Republican senator has delved into his campaign treasury to run a series of TV ads touting his conservative credentials.

The Senate race at the top of the list in Kentucky sometimes appears to be overshadowed by the state’s new gubernatorial race in 2023. Several Republican candidates are vying for the upper hand in what is shaping up to be an intensely competitive GOP government primary next spring. Democratic Governor Andy Beshear is seeking a second term.
