Oh, and I forgot to comment on this erroneous statement in the article:
“This is the second time in Kentuckys history that only one Democrat has served in the federal delegation Chandler in 2005.”
It is true that starting on January 3, 2005, and until January 3, 2007, KY only had one Democrat in its congressional delegation (Ben Chandler). But how can they say that it was the only time that it had happened, when Ken Lucas had been the only in KY’s congressional delegation from January 3, 1999 (when he was sworn in to the House as Congressman Baessler and Senator Ford departed) until February 17, 2004 (when Chandler was sworn in after winning a special election)? That was over five years of a single-Democrat state delegation. And it ended less than 10 years ago: how could the author—who claims to be so knowledgable regarding KY politics—forget about that?
And then that swine Chandler had to go and win Ernie's seat before we got Bunning's back. LAME.
I think beating Chandler was the only House race we won that I wasn't sure we would.
Compared to several I was sure we would that we did not. ;/
Another tibit from the CD POTUS numbers, Romney kicked ass in Bachmann's district by 15 points as she barely won. A much worse disparity than West's district (carried by Romney). It's a shame to see her so weak.
