Is this a normally GOP district?
Ann Northup has a history of beating the odds, but this looks bad. Could she be the Scotty Baesler of 2008?
“Is this a normally GOP district?”
No, it’s based in urban Louisville and has voted Democrat for President in every election since 1992.
Well then - this isn’t all that worrisome.
Another Democrat is being rewarded for the great job his party is doing in congress. Go figure...
Ann was a fairly solid conservative and for ten years was a friend to hard-working, taxpaying, traditional American families - - meaning she’s got no chance in a Democrat parasite nest like Louisville.
