DANVILLE, KY–Vice President Joe Biden and Rep. Paul Ryan face off Thursday in their one and only debate in a state that is the birthplace of Bourbon.

In the video above, I talked with Eric Gregory, the president of the Kentucky Distillers Association, about why Kentucky Bourbon is special.

there are people (4.3 million).”
