Historian Says Tensions Between Ky. Gov. And Lt. Gov. Far From Unprecedented

Unless you’ve been hiding under a rock or are brand new to the commonwealth you know that there’s been a lot of tension between Kentucky Governor Matt Bevin and his Lieutenant Governor Jenean Hampton.  And while the recent quarrels have been endless fodder for political pundits, how often has this kind of thing happened before in Kentucky?  Kentucky historian Ron Bryant puts it all in perspective.  He talks with WUKY's Alan Lytle.
