Hundreds expected to question US Rep. Andy Barr

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) – Hundreds of people are expected to question Republican U.S. Rep. Andy Barr about his support for Republican President Donald Trump’s policies.

Barr is scheduled to host a “Coffee with your Congressman” event in Lexington on Monday. It will be the 70th such event Barr has held since taking office in 2013. But this time, Barr will speak at a high school auditorium to accommodate the expected crowd.

Barr has been targeted by a series of loosely affiliated progressive groups that have sprung up during the first months of Trump’s presidency.

Democrats hope to harness that momentum for the midterm elections next year, where historically the political party in power has lost seats.

Barr says he is not worried as long as Republicans keep their promise to repeal the Affordable Care Act.
