Senator Mitch McConnell visits Floyd County

Senator Mitch McConnell visited Floyd County on Wednesday to talk politics at the Southeast Kentucky Chamber of Commerce membership luncheon held at Jenny Wiley State Park. Members from other area chambers such as Johnson and Letcher counties were also in attendance. McConnell's primary focus for discussion were the current economy and the coal industry. He also stated that "it was a great opportunity for Kentucky to host the Vice-Presidential debate" and that he too plans to attend. McConnell ended his day with a trip to Highlands Regional Medical Center with a discussion concerning health care reform.
