Kentucky may have been won handily by Republican Mitt Romney in the general election, but Democrats from the Bluegrass State will be partying in Washington, D.C. Sunday to celebrate the inauguration of President Obama.
The Kentucky Democratic Party is hosting a reception from 4 to 6 p.m. Sunday at the Four Points Sheraton Hotel on K Street in Washington, with Gov. Steve Beshear, Lt. Gov. Jerry Abramson, Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes and Kentucky Democratic Party chairman Dan Logsdon on hand.
Funding for a new Brent Spence Bridge will include tolls, according to U.S. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood, and governors from Ohio and Kentucky who gathered Wednesday in Covington. But that doesn't mean everyone is on board with the idea.
As Ohio Governor John Kasich stood beside his Kentucky counterpart announcing the states would be working together to build a new bridge, he didn't shy away from letting a roomful of officials and reporters know that a toll would be part of it.
