My name is Mike Broihier, and I am running for US Senate here in Kentucky as a Democrat, to retire Mitch McConnell and restore our republic. Proof.
I’ve been a Marine, a farmer, a public school teacher, a college professor, a county government official, and spent five years as a reporter and then editor of a local newspaper. With my experiences, we’ll put together a winning coalition in a rural state to beat Mitch McConnell once and for all.
We’ve been endorsed by Andrew Yang, Marianne Williamson, Richard Ojeda, Indivisible Kentucky and community leaders across the state.
I have a deep appreciation, understanding, and respect for the struggles that working families and rural communities endure every day in Kentucky – the kind that only comes from living it. That’s why I am running a progressive campaign here in Kentucky that focuses on economic and social justice, with a Universal Basic Income as one of my central policy proposals.
We have a plan for UBI, Medicare For All, and Criminal Justice Reform.
Sign our petition for a Criminal Justice Overhaul Petition here.
This campaign is headed down to the wire, and Kentuckians are voting now by mail, with minimal in-person voting on June 23rd. If you’re a Kentuckian, get your ballot here.
Ask me ANYTHING!
As a Marine Corps officer for over 20 years, I led marines and sailors in wartime and peace. I aided humanitarian efforts and helped separate warring factions during the Somali Civil War, and served as Chief War Planner in the Republic of Korea. My wife Lynn is also a Marine. We retired from the Marine Corps in 2005 and bought Chicken Bristle Farm, a 75-acre farm plot in Lincoln County.
Together we’ve raised livestock and developed the largest all-natural and sustainable asparagus operation in central Kentucky. I worked as a substitute teacher in the local school district and as a reporter and editor for the Interior Journal, the third oldest newspaper in our Commonwealth.
We started our campaign in July. Here’s why.
Here is an AMA we did in May, and here’s one from March.
Here are some links to my Campaign Site and Facebook page.
To help me answer questions, my staffer Sunil (at u/MikeKYPress) will be here as well. I’ll answer as many as I can throughout the day, checking in until at least 8pm ET. Keep them coming.
