Charles Booker

Charles Booker was elected in 2018 to the Kentucky State House of Representatives, and is the youngest Black state legislator in 90 years. During his time in office, Charles has championed common sense gun safety reform, affordable housing protections, voting rights, and strong labor unions. His overwhelming support and endorsements from local Kentuckians, and inspirational inclusive message, make him the most viable candidate to defeat Mitch McConnell in November. Unlike his big-money Democratic opponent, he has pledged to end the Forever War.

Charles is a lifelong resident of Louisville’s West End, growing up in what has been one of the poorest zip codes in Kentucky. Growing up, he experienced the pain of poverty firsthand, and saw his mom skip meals just so he could have enough. He’s been homeless, and Charles has had to ration his insulin because he couldn’t afford the medication he needed as a Type 1 diabetic.

Charles became the first in his family to graduate from law school, and went on to lead a transformative career across Kentucky, covering every level of government. He has served as a Director of Administrative Services for the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife, where he traveled across the commonwealth and saw that all Kentuckians are united in their hopes for a better future.
