Protesters outside McConnell luncheon

Covering Protest of McConnell's Visit to Covington for the River City News

2/26/17 - Covington, KY

I covered the protest rally outside a luncheon featuring Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell at the Hotel Covington. I was impressed by not only the number of people there, but also the diversity of those people. I saw people from every walk of life, including from many different political affiliations. In general, the gathered crowd was very well-behaved from what I could see, and the police at the scene were very professional. All in all, it was nice to see democracy in action.

The linked article features many additional photos from the event, but these photos were some of my favorites I made.
