LEX18 has decided to temporarily pull Matt Jones from Hey Kentucky! until he decides if he’ll run for U.S. Senate.
“I disagree with the decision, but I understand where they’re coming from,” Jones said in a statement. “When people put pressure on you from the outside it makes it difficult. But it makes it apparent how mainstream political voices want to quell any dissent.”
Jones is publicly considering a run for the U.S. Senate, seeking the Democratic nomination to challenge Mitch McConnell.
This decision comes less than a week after Amy McGrath announced her candidacy for the Democratic nomination.
UPDATE: Matt hopped on the Terry Meiners Show this evening to discuss LEX18’s decision. You can hear his comments below.
He will discuss the news further on tomorrow’s show.
