Matt Jones will explore a run for Senate. This morning, the Kentucky Sports Radio founder announced he is forming an exploratory committee to help him decide whether or not to enter the 2020 Senate race. He will make a final decision after the statewide elections in November.
Part of that decision-making process will include speaking to Kentuckians as he travels the state to research his new book, “Mitch, Please,” which will detail Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s negative impact on the state during his three decades of service, specifically how he has neglected the people he was elected to serve in favor of acquiring more power in Washington.
“It makes a lot more sense for me to make the final decision after I’ve done that, after I’ve listened to Kentuckians and talked to Kentuckians about what they want in a senator and whether or not I’m the right person going against McConnell,” Matt told the Courier-Journal’s Joe Sonka. “So rather than me just sort of declaring that I’m the best candidate, I’d like to talk to people and hear what they have to say.”
By forming the exploratory committee, Matt can now raise money to conduct polling and research on a potential run, but will not be allowed to campaign or ask for votes.
Matt will discuss the decision on today’s show. In the meantime, you can read more at the link below.
