I know I’ve linked to this story a few times already, but please explain the latest from Ronnie Ellis:
Mongiardo believes there are two Democratic parties in Kentucky — that led by the establishment personified by former Sen. Wendell Ford, state Auditor Crit Luallen, Beshear and others and another one made up of “the little guys” with whom Mongiardo identifies. Conway had the backing of the Democratic elite and big donors, but Mongiardo led most of the way in polling — until Conway pummeled him with negative television ads while Mongiardo’s under funded campaign had to sit on the sidelines, hoarding its cash for the final push. Again, Mongiardo lost narrowly.
What the hell does Lt. Dan think he’s going to accomplish by throwing Crit Luallen under the bus? She’s one of the few respected elected officials in the Commonwealth and is one of the few people in the entire history of the state to, you know, just do her job.
And really? Saying Wendell Ford is “establishment”? Haha. He’s the kind of person who makes racist remarks and is still well-liked by both liberals and conservatives. But establishment because he supported Jack Conway? Hahaha.
Additionally, Lt. Dan needs to put up or shut up. If he’s got the goods on Papaw Beshear, he needs to spill the beans.
I wondered how long it would take Daniel to decided he was ready to leave the scene in Kentucky. Apparently that time is now, as he is finished.
