Kelly Craft visits Jackson’s Diner as part of Kitchen Table campaign tour




September 23 – Kelly Craft, former US ambassador to Canada and the United Nations and the Republican candidate for governor, stopped by Jackson Diner on Thursday evening to share her campaign program.

Craft is campaigning on a tour of moms and pop restaurants across the state. Kraft, a native of Glasgow, Kentucky, said kitchen table problems were the reason she ran for office.

“Growing up in a small community was very important to me,” Kraft said. “Because you think you have freedom, but you really don’t, because all your neighbors are looking for you.” “It was the most wonderful upbringing… We miss the issues of the family table and the kitchen table. These issues today are very different.”

Kraft was appointed to her ambassadorial positions by former President Donald Trump and was a major donor to former Kentucky Governor Matt Bevin.

In her remarks Thursday, Kraft criticized President Joe Biden and Governor Andy Beshear and touched on topics such as combating critical race theory, stopping fentanyl, and supporting law enforcement.

“If anyone, any community, says they’re planning to cut police funding, I can tell you that they (the community) will have the money withdrawn from them immediately. We owe that to our law enforcement. We owe it to those who protect us,” Kraft said.

Kraft also spoke about encouraging young people to join the workforce, especially technical jobs.

“College isn’t for everyone,” Kraft said. “Tech programs don’t just provide jobs, they boost their creativity. Some of the smartest, brightest electricians I know got started in technology, they started in vocational school.”


Kraft, who is married to Joe Kraft, CEO of Alliance Resource Partners, a coal producer, said she wants to protect and expand the coal industry.

The Republican candidate also spoke about her time as an ambassador – describing the United Nations as a snake’s den.

Trump initially appointed Craft as US ambassador to Canada, where she played a role in facilitating the US-Mexico-Canada Trade Agreement, Trump’s long-awaited renewal of the North American Free Trade Agreement. A statement from Kraft’s campaign said the updated trade deal benefited workers, farmers, and businesses in Kentucky and across the country.

On Thursday, Kraft said it was proud of its track record of doing business with China.

Kraft received questions from the crowd before a meet-and-greet.

When asked what made her separate from other candidates seeking to remove Governor Bashir, Kraft said she was not a career politician.

“I am an unprofessional politician. I have served Donald Trump, not once, but twice, as first ambassador to Canada and then ambassador to the United Nations. I am an outcome driven leader… We need someone you don’t need a job, but you need a job,” Kraft said. a job”.
