Governor Matt Bevin and incoming Speaker Jeff Hoover speaking at GOP victory rally.
Taking majority including defeat of Dem House Speaker Greg Stumbo in his House district.
A big deal in a presidential election.
Bodes well for Trump nationally.
Now, I hate to ask, but are these people TRUE Conservatives, or do we have a whole ‘nother bunch of RINOs to do battle with? ;)
Wow is right! Although I live in southern Indiana...we are right across the Ohio River from Louisville...get Louisville local media, etc. we are there all the time. All three of our sons live in the ‘ville, as well. Anyway, that is incredible!! And Stumbo lost....hahaha!
Remember the last time the Republicans won big in D.C.? What was that in 2012 or 2014? What a pack of frauds.
let’s all ask them to please do SOMETHING about the Turtle....how does he keep his power?...GET HIM OUT!!!! NOW!!!!
Kind of a mixed bag that depends on the issue at hand, really. Kentucky is kind of a diverse state - rural coal, rural agriculture, urban, suburban, exurban, etc. I guess that exists in every state to a degree but our state is much longer across than it looks on a map and these different interests are very isolated from each other.
The gov, Bevin, is a TEA Party guy who challenged McConnell in the R primary four years ago. Lost, but had a respectable showing. Ran for gov two years ago, all the polls showed the Dem winning, and Bevin won by 3-4 points.
His crazy election night ‘sermon’ from last year when Bevin won (as well as other down ballot races) came back to haunt him - being featured prominently in radio and TV advertising.
On the contrary, he won by about 9 points.
2010 mid-terms. Elected to stop Obamacare and to cut the budget. Worked out well /s
Yep...I remember that “sermon”.
By the way, GO Cats! Lol! (the only time I bleed blue.). Ha!
Gezzz, how time flys...Thanks
Indiana calling race for Eric Holcolmbe for Governor.
That would be the good guy.
RAHHHHRRRRRRRRRRRR! Don’t imprison a woman of Christian conscience EVER! You will suffer the electoral repercussions for YEARS!!!
In any case, it’s an interesting statement on the value of polls.
He’s got coattails.
The reason HE’s not carrying swing states is fraud on HIS direct spot on the ballot. I’m going to take a look at Broward FL percentages tomorrow and they are going to be absolutely skewed as to the rest of the Republican vote. Rubio won big. You watch. The infamous fraudulent counties are going to have very strange numbers.
