Kentucky heads to the polls tomorrow and the winner of the race will very likely determine whether the state keeps it's Medicaid expansion or whether to get rid of it. Steve Beshear, the current Democratic governor, expanded Medicaid under fierce opposition from the Republican party in the state.
Jack Conway, the current State Attorney General and Democratic nominee for Governor, has promised to stick with Medicaid expansion, but his rival, businessman Matt Bevin, has promised to do away with Medicaid expansion if he were to be elected.
So this means the election will have very real consequences for the state of Kentucky. If the voters choose Bevin then thousands of Kentuckians may find themselves without medical coverage in the very near future and if the voters choose Conway then they are sending a clear signal they want to keep things as they already are.
It will be interesting to see where this goes on Tuesday. Polls are showing Conway with a small lead, but anything can happen in politics.
I'm interested to see if anyone living in Kentucky has an opinion on the race. Anyone can chime in, but it would be nice to hear from someone with skin in the game.
