Today on the Rob Maness Show we have on Wesley Morgan, who is running against Mitch McConnell for U.S. Senate.
Clinton Wesley Morgan was born on July 23, 1950. He was raised in Leslie County, Kentucky, located in rural Appalachia, where he grew up with four sisters and parents who owned their own mom and pop business. Though his family didn’t have much, Wesley and his sisters were raised to be appreciative of what they did have and to work hard. Following graduation from high school in 1968, Wesley received student loans and attended Cumberland College in Williamsburg, Kentucky where he earned a Bachelor of Science in political science and history in 1972. He then attended Eastern Kentucky University where he earned a Bachelor of Business Administration degree in accounting in 1974.
Following college, he accepted a position as a staff accountant for a CPA firm. From 1975-1979, he worked as an auditor/criminal investigator for the Internal Revenue Service, and from 1979-1982 he worked as a criminal investigator for the Federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms. During that time, he served on the protection detail for Teddy Kennedy and Vice President Walter Mondale. In 1982, he left the federal government and decided to open his own retail liquor store. He has operated several liquor businesses throughout Kentucky since that time. He is currently the CEO of Liquor World of Richmond (2001-Present) and Liquor World of Irvine (2014-Present).
Wesley married Lindsey Morgan in March 2007. He has two daughters, Jordan Morgan, 29, an attorney, and Sydney Morgan, 11, who is currently in sixth grade and home schooled. Wesley is a member of Trinity Missionary Baptist Church in Richmond, Kentucky.
