Dec. 6, 2018, 11:20 a.m.

Former Lt. Gov. Crit Luallen (D) endorsed state Attorney General Andy Beshear (D) on Wednesday. “Former Gov. Steve Beshear (D), Andy Beshear’s father, appointed Luallen as Kentucky’s 56th lieutenant governor in 2014 and she served in that capacity through Dec. 8, 2015. She was also elected as the state’s auditor of public accounts for two consecutive terms, serving from 2003 to 2011.” (Frankfort State-Journal)

LOANS. Gov. Matt Bevin’s (R) “2015 campaign committees have started to pay him back for the loans he made to finance his campaign for governor. Bevin personally loaned $4.12 million to his primary and election campaign committees in 2015 … Since then, Bevin has kept those committees active and they have continued to raise contributions and spend money. Reports these committees filed with the Kentucky Registry of Election Finance this week show they raised a modest $149,350 during the past year. And they spent $198,112. The largest part of that spending was $100,000 the committees paid to Bevin on Jan. 3. This was the first payment the committees made on the loans from Bevin. The Bevin 2015 campaign committees report having a cash balance of $714,308, with no debts beyond what they owe to Bevin. Bevin announced in late August he will run for re-election in 2019, but he has declined to say whether he will run again with Lt. Gov. Jenean Hampton. He must choose a running mate and register his slate with the election registry before his campaign can raise or spend money for the 2019 election.” (Louisville Courier-Journal)

"Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said that the Senate will take up criminal justice reform legislation as soon as this week, marking a win for President Donald Trump and a remarkable turnaround for the bill. The latest version of the measure could be released as soon as Tuesday, according to two sources familiar with the matter, and is likely to win over more Republican support on a plan that had sharply divided the GOP."

"The conservative writer and conspiracy theorist Jerome Corsi filed a lawsuit on Sunday accusing special counsel Robert Mueller of blackmailing him to lie about President Donald Trump in the investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 election. The suit, which seeks $350 million in actual and punitive damages in U.S. District Court in Washington, was filed six days after Corsi entered a formal complaint with the Justice Department alleging prosecutorial misconduct by Mueller." Corsi alleges that Mueller illegally leaked information from the grand jury, and that Mueller's team "threatened him with prison unless he agreed to testify falsely that he served as a liaison between WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange and the Republican political strategist Roger Stone."
