ICYMI: Washington Post says Beshear is a “progressive Democrat” who “almost never criticizes” Joe Biden

September 8, 2023

Louisville, Ky. (September 8, 2023) – Yesterday, a liberal columnist in the Washington Post praised Andy Beshear as a “progressive Democrat” who doesn’t “do much to appease conservative voters” and “almost never criticizes” Joe Biden.

“A liberal columnist just said the quiet part out loud: Andy Beshear is a liberal progressive Democrat who is beholden to Joe Biden and the Democrat party,” Cameron for Governor Communications Director Sean Southard said. “In this election, a vote for Andy Beshear is a vote for Joe Biden.”

The columnist writes: “Beshear is a Democrat — he’s a firmly pro-abortion-rights, pro-LGBTQ+, pro-union, pro-racial-equity one…The governor’s policy stances are virtually indistinguishable from most Democratic officials across the country. Beshear almost never criticizes the president or others in the party.”
