McConnell Comments on the Passing of Former Kentucky Governor John Y. Brown Jr.

LOUISVILLE, KY --  U.S. Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) released the following statement today on the passing of former Kentucky Governor John Y. Brown Jr.:

 

“Elaine and I were saddened to learn of the passing of former Kentucky Governor John Y. Brown Jr. Many of us first learned of Governor Brown through his business leadership. As one of the chief investors to purchase Kentucky Fried Chicken from Harland Sanders in 1964, he took one of the Commonwealth’s signature businesses and made it a global household name. Later in life, he applied his private sector prowess to government, promising to run Kentucky with the same discipline and creativity that had made his various enterprises thrive. Our prayers are with Governor Brown’s four children and all others who knew and loved this legendary businessman and statesman.”
