STATEMENT FROM LAWRENCE COUNTY ATTORNEY MIKE HOGAN:

Lawrence County Attorney Michael Hogan is seriously considering a run for Ky. Atty. General in 2019. He said today that he is a 'Donald Trump Conservative'Lawrence County Attorney Michael Hogan is seriously considering a run for Ky. Atty. General in 2019. He said today that he is a 'Donald Trump Conservative'

 

“As we now know, the 2019 campaign for Kentucky Attorney General will be for an open seat, as Attorney General Andy Beshear has announced he will run for governor instead of for a second term.

Now more than ever, I believe this means that the Republican Party must nominate a qualified candidate for attorney general who can win a general election. Our last nominee proved that he was not electable despite a Republican wave election, and he has proven since that time that he is ideologically incompatible with a majority of Kentucky Republicans.

Criminals belong in prisons, not on the streets. Illegal immigrants should have to follow the law. We have a culture problem, not a gun problem in Kentucky and America. Public assistance programs funded by hardworking taxpayers shouldn't be ripped off by con artists. And yes, we should drug test welfare recipients.

I'm a Donald Trump Conservative, and I want to see us elect a Republican Attorney General in Kentucky in 2019.

That being said, I am seriously considering once again running for Attorney General so that Kentucky can have an experienced prosecutor as its chief law enforcement official. Over the coming weeks, I will be traveling across Kentucky and speaking with people in every corner of our state.

I would appreciate your input, and your prayers as my family and I make this decision."

Yes, you should run. We need a Trump man, but we also need someone who will support our Governor not take him to court every time he tries to do something. All my prayers are with you.

Forget it. I'd never vote for a person who won't go after deadbeat dads. Especially when they are told where they are.

Do yourself a favor and don't run. You are a big fish in a little pond in Louisa. I think you would be eaten alive in Frankfort. I just don't see you as qualified as you think you are. Also, like most Republicans, you can't think outside the box. Same old tactics and non-solutions.

He knows the law and believes in law and order. He upholds the law impartially and effectively. I’ve seen it in person and would vote for him.
