Pence Stumps for Bevin in Campaign Stop

Pence Stumps for Bevin in Campaign Stop

Vice President Mike Pence campaigned Friday for Republican Kentucky Gov. Matt Bevin, making one of the Trump administration’s first forays into a trio of 2019 Southern governor’s races.

Bevin’s approval numbers have dropped since he took office in 2015.

Pence noted Friday that “under (Bevin’s) leadership, per-pupil funding has reached the highest level in the history of the state of Kentucky.” But Bevin and Pence did not mention that Bevin vetoed the Republican-backed 2018 legislation that made both of those things possible.

And while the dollar amount Kentucky has spent per pupil in public education is at an all-time high, when adjusted for inflation it is 13 percent less than the state spent in 2008.
