    The Democratic candidate for CD3 will be [drum roll] former Democratic state representative and current Pueblo County Commissioner Mouthy McFayden. Sorry, we mean Buffie McFadyen. ... Former Democratic leader in the State House and current Pueblo County Commissioner Buffie McFadyen was the recipient of some special treatment by police during a potential DUI stop in Pueblo. She was caught in a rather awkward situation — parked in a dirt lot at night, intoxicated and with a man who isn’t her husband. But she didn’t get a DUI – instead she got a ride home. But, it gets even better. We...

    CORPUS CHRISTI — Nueces County investigators are working hard to determine whether Tom Greenwell’s position as judge of the 319th District Court had anything to do with his suicide, Sheriff Jim Kaelin said Wednesday morning. “We have to overturn the big stones as well as the little stones ... so everybody in our community is very comfortable understanding why he did what he did,” Kaelin said, adding his office is devoting all its resources to the case. Investigators have strong leads toward understanding Greenwell’s motive. Kaelin said the judge was driven to believe suicide was “the only option he had.”...

    Bermuda and Palau may not be the only beautiful tropical islands to host illegal Islamist combatants being released from US custody at Guantanamo Bay Naval Station. If a Hawaii County Councilman and a Kauai County activist get their way, some would get a new home—and complete freedom--on two of Hawaii’s most beautiful islands. Robert Greenwell represents the North Kona district where activists recently protested against training US military personnel at Pohakuloa Training Area. They may not want US soldiers and marines, but al-Qaeda fighters are welcome.

    Combining modern Internet technology with old-school groundwork, state Republican Party leaders are fanning out across the state and setting up shop in ten key cities (including Florence), in a bid to elect the state's first Republican governor in more than 35 years. The statewide initiative, which party officials call "Team Kentucky," is a take on a similar strategy used in last year's statehouse and congressional races. Organizing on a local level, the party will mobilize state, local and federal Republicans to promote its statewide ticket, headed this year by gubernatorial candidate Congressman Ernie Fletcher. Team Kentucky will start with door-to-door...

    Kentucky Democrats are fighting for their political lives in this November's elections, two party nominees told Kenton County Democrats Monday night. "This is the biggest threat we've faced in our lifetime in the Democratic Party," state auditor candidate Crit Luallen told members of the Kenton County Democratic Club Monday night at Walt's Hitching Post in Fort Wright. "The trend in this state is moving Republican. We've all got problems learning how to confront that challenge." Republicans, behind gubernatorial candidate Ernie Fletcher, think this is their best chance at the governor's mansion since Louie Nunn left office in 1971. And if...

    KEEPING GOP AT BAY WILL REQUIRE FINESSE FRANKFORT - Kentucky's Democratic ticket enters the fall campaign doing something it hasn't done in a generation. It's running scared. Republicans have a ticket that seems formidable for the most part. At the top are squeaky clean Ernie Fletcher and Steve Pence, thumping the drum for change after eight consecutive Democratic administrations. It is not just the governorship that Republicans covet and have been denied for more than 30 years. Not one of the undercard offices (attorney general, auditor, agriculture commissioner, treasurer or secretary of state) has been won by a Republican since...
