KSR’s Gubernatorial Debate is wrapping up, and while the candidates have covered plenty of topics ranging from Planned Parenthood to medical marijuana, the question you probably care about most is which team they’d cheer for in a head-to-head matchup: Kentucky or Louisville.
Democrat Jack Conway gave the most infuriating response when he said he’d cheer for both, despite the fact that he grew up a Kentucky fan.
“Both of them. Come on, I’m for both of them. I grew up a huge Kentucky fan,” Conway said, telling listeners how he met Goose Givens a few months ago and told him about how he grew up watching the ’78 team and made signs saying “Duke is Puke.”
…Yet, you would still cheer for both Louisville and Kentucky?! Pfft. Politician.
Independent Drew Curtis simply said “Kentucky,” while Republican Matt Bevin, who picked Rick Pitino over John Calipari during KSR’s GOP Gubernatorial Debate in May, went the safe route this time around and said the Cats.
“I learned my lesson last time in trying to be diplomatic,” Bevin said. “I’d pick Kentucky.”
