Yesterday, Adam Edelen was in Northern Kentucky with Elaine Nogay Walker and Jerry Abramson and said, “Our party is one that doesn’t quit on people.”
Unfortunately for him, that’s just not true. Edelen may not quit on people but Kentucky Democrats most certainly do. The Party has most certainly tried to crap on Alison Grimes, has demonized anybody questioning Steve Beshear and has gone out of its way to ostracize progressives.
Edelen also said that he’s running for auditor because “It’s time to elect leaders that acknowledge that low expectations are what damn us the most.”
No way to dispute that last bit. Here’s hoping he’s prepared for high expectations. And, if/when those expectations aren’t met, here’s hoping he’s prepared to be open, honest and transparent without quitting on the Kentuckians who are set to elect him.
