(LEX 18)– On “State of the Commonwealth” this week LEX 18 takes a look at each of the candidates before Tuesday’s primary election.
Representative Rocky Adkins is the House Minority Leader. He is a former Morehead State University point guard.
“Folks, I’ve got the point guard mentality. And the point guard mentality is you make Kentucky better, not by looking in the mirror and saying, ‘me, me, me.’ The point guard mentality is how you look at ‘we.’ When you make your team better, you make yourself better,” he said.
Once serving as the state’s floor general, as Democratic Majority Leader, Adkins now has the minority lead while seeking the Democratic nod for governor.
“As Governor I will work for you day in and day out. Not for myself, not for special interests but for you,” he said.
Adkins could carry districts in Eastern Kentucky where he is a household name.
