Michael G. Adams

Candidate for Secretary of State, Michael G. Adams, is happily married to Christina Adams and the proud father of Lucia Adams. 

Michael G. Adams, a candidate running for Secretary of State, hosted a 'Knox County: Meet the Candidate' event Wednesday afternoon, May 15 at the Ugly Mug Coffee House in Barbourville.
The event was open to the public as Knox County citizens visited with Adams and learned more about his personal background, experience, and vision for the office. 

According to Adams website, Adams has built a successful Republican election-law practice, where he has represented Vice President Mike Pence’s political committee, the National Federation of Republican Women, and scores of other conservative candidates, committees and causes.

In 2016, as treasurer and counsel to Kentuckians for Strong Leadership, a Super PAC targeting Kentucky state house districts, he contributed to efforts that helped flip the Kentucky House of Representatives to Republican control for the first time in nearly a century.

In recognition of Michael’s expertise in election law and conservative credentials, Gov. Matt Bevin appointed him to the Kentucky State Board of Elections, where Adams served for a year and a half before resigning to run for Secretary of State.

Kentucky’s Secretary of State chairs the State Board of Elections and is the Commonwealth’s top elections official.
