Clinton speaks with working parents in Lexington

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ) – Hillary Clinton, the hopeful Democratic presidential nominee, stopped in Lexington on Tuesday to hold a discussion with working parents.

Clinton spoke with families at around 12:30 a.m. at the Family Care Center.

In her remarks, Clinton said that families should pay no more than 10 percent of income on childcare, and spoke to the merits of increasing pay for childcare workers and providing more home visits by social workers.

Tune in to ABC 36 News at 5, 5:30, and 6 for more on her discussion.

All of this on the heels of former Governor Steve Beshear announcing his support for Clinton ahead of next Tuesday’s Democratic presidential primary.

“In this time of division and derision, we need a calm, sensible and experienced hand leading this nation. Hillary Clinton is that leader, and I enthusiastically endorse her to be President of these United States,” said former Kentucky Gov. Steve Beshear. “Having worked aggressively and in a collaborative fashion as Kentucky’s Governor to improve life for our people, I know that she is committed to the same key issues – partnering with others to create jobs and expand access to affordable health care.

Republican Party of Kentucky Spokesman Tres Watson issued the following statement today in response to Beshear’s endorsement:

“It comes as no surprise that Steve Beshear would endorse Hillary Clinton.  Between their embrace of Obamacare, support for job-killing coal regulations and the fact that scandal now engulfs their previous administrations, they have a lot in common.“
