Pence Touts GOP Tax Overhaul in Kentucky

posted by NewsRadio 840 WHAS - 

VERSAILLES, Ky. -- Vice President Pence used a Kentucky business as a backdrop to promote the Republican tax overhaul, which is a key issue in this year's midterm elections.

Pence spoke at More Than a Bakery, a snack food manufacturer in Versailles.    He noted that more than four million Americans have already received a raise or bonus because of tax cuts.   

Central Kentucky is an area with a hotly contested congressional race.   Republican Representative Andy Barr has drawn several Democratic challengers, including Lexington Mayor Jim Gray.

The Kentucky Democratic Party issued a statement, saying "If the tax plan was actually helping people, they wouldn't have to spend so much money on selling it to the American people."
