    Conservatives should write in Tom Tancredo in the primary ballot to demonstrate the depth of concern we have with the President. If enough do this, he will get the message.

    How do I locate the Free Republic Chapter of Kentucky? Just joined this website yesterday, and have skimmed through some threads and am learning alot. I've neglected myself and my state by not being properly informed on all details of politics, local issues, and the such. Now's my time to get involved, and I am really interested in more information on this Free Republic Chapter. Any comments are welcomed. I hope this was the right place to post this thread. Thank you!

    LA Times ^ | December 30 | John M. Glionna
    Democrats Losing the Lease on Their Old Kentucky Home .........Democrats once held unquestioned sway in Kentucky. But no more. The state recently elected its first GOP governor in 32 years. The GOP also has made gains from the coal fields in the east to the white-fenced horse stables of suburban Lexington. And this political transformation in Kentucky illustrates the hurdles Democrats will face as they battle to win moderate-to-conservative states in next year's presidential election.........
  • Chandler to Run for Fletcher's old Congressional Seat

    Attorney General Ben Chandler will run for the 6th District congressional seat given up by Gov. Ernie Fletcher, The Associated Press has learned. Chandler scheduled a news conference for Thursday afternoon at his home in Versailles. Two sources close to Chandler’s campaign but speaking on condition of anonymity told the AP that Chandler had decided to seek the Democratic nomination for a special election Fletcher plans to schedule for Feb. 17. Chandler lost to Fletcher in the gubernatorial election Nov. 4. Democratic Party leaders in Kentucky and Washington, D.C., have said Chandler would be a strong candidate. “We’re very excited...

    FORT MITCHELL - Kentucky U.S. Rep. Ken Lucas, a Boone County Democrat, will announce today that he will retire from Congress and not seek a fourth term next year, sources close to Lucas said Sunday. Nick Clooney, a television personality, newspaper columnist, Democrat from Augusta and the father of actor George Clooney, will announce plans to run for Lucas' Fourth Congressional District in the 2004 election, the sources said. Clooney did not return phone calls made to his home Sunday. It is not clear if he will continue to write a column for the Cincinnati Post once he begins raising...
  • Court Clerk to Challenge Northup

    11/22/2003 12:16:05 AM PST · by GOPfan · 12 replies · 1,176+ views
    LOUISVILLE - Democrat Tony Miller, a fixture on the local ballot as Jefferson Circuit Court clerk, announced yesterday he will run for Congress next year against Republican Rep. Anne Northup. Miller said he would bank on his "deep roots" in the community to overcome Northup's incumbency and prolific fund-raising. Northup, who was first elected in 1996, is a political ally of President Bush. Vice President Dick Cheney is to appear at a Northup fund-raiser Monday in Louisville. Miller accused Northup of putting corporate interests ahead of voters' needs in the 3rd District, which covers Louisville and most of its suburbs...
  • KY6 - Special Election -- Will We Hold That Seat?

    11/18/2003 11:27:10 AM PST · by coyotekid · 12 replies · 1,212+ views
    Does anyone know when KY Gov-Elect Fletcher must call for the special election to fill his House seat? I know it can't be sooner than 35 days after he resigns, but what is the latest. The press only talks about who might run for the seat, but there's not a focus on time frames and the strategy involved in that. Looking at the exit polls following the KY gov's race on foxnews.com, I'm concerned that Chandler could pick-up that seat against a soft state senator. Of those that said sending a message about Patton was not a factor in their...

    Unlike the recent primary, a general election is about allowing voters to choose the candidate they think is the best choice for an elected position, Greg Ginter said. It’s not just about voting for your party’s candidate. And because of that, Ginter said he resigned his position as chair of the Madison County Democratic Party to support Republican Congressman Ernie Fletcher’s campaign for governor. Ginter said he made the decision and submitted his resignation the day after the primary election because he did not feel it would be appropriate for him to support Fletcher and maintain his position as chair....

    Brad Moore initiated is campaign on the final filing day for candidates for statewide offices, along with four other Republican candidates. Each assumed they might be the sole candidate for the Primary election. Mr. Moore was concerned about the amount of time a state-wide campaign demanded but wanted to make sure a qualified candidate represented the Commonwealth and the Republican Party. With a background in both business and law, Mr. Moore was prepared to conduct a candidacy stressing the need for enforcing business fundamentals, e.g., fiscal responsibility, and combining that with the legal knowledge to interpret legislative guidance. After withdrawing...
