According to a poll last week, Alice Forgy Kerr is still trailing Ben Chandler in the special election to replace Ernie Fletcher.
Any out there have any comments, inside info, etc. on this race?
BTW, why wouldn't Bush come and campaign for Forgy-Kerr? I think he should have. He should have gone down and campaigned for Bobby Jindal too.

It's not looking good. A SurveyUSA poll taken recently showed a closer race, with Chandler still leading but slowly losing ground. Chandler's lead is based mostly on his name recognition, which is widespread. It appears that Alice Forgy Kerr didn't have enough time to become known to the public.
You're definitely right about one thing--Bush should have campaigned in this race. If Chandler does win this race, Bush deserves a heap of criticism.
I would agree. I don't understand why Bush did not and campaign for Jindal. He better go and campaign in SD. We can't afford to lose seat as this provides traction to a faltering Democrat Party. Herseth does have name recognition and the like, but we should be able to keep this seat. I have a sneaking feeling that we are going to lose Fletcher's seat. That is too bad.

Does not the candidate have to run again in Nov?

Yes, but this time as an incumbent. That makes it a little more difficult to unseat them.

The answer is YES, we are going to lose the election in Kentucky's 6th. distrcit. Oh, well, you win some, you lose some.
It was lost but with Dems having a 60% to 40% registration advantage, it was hard for Kerr to deal with a popular name, heritage, and this will mean that Chandler has to run again this Fall.
