The rumor mill is hot this week because the Beshear crew fear that Alison Lundergan Grimes will try to run for governor in four years. So what’s the solution?
They’re hyping that Crit Luallen will run for the office with Jack Conway as her running mate. Will it happen? Of course not. Crit loves to be courted, though. And, no, she won’t be running with Bruce Lunsford but we’d love to see that happen. Maybe then the state wouldn’t be bankrupt.
The other rumors? Crit will run for the U.S. Senate against Mitch McConnell. Will it happen? Highly unlikely. If she was serious, she’d already have gotten her hands on the McConnell research book and she has not done so. It remains under lock and key in my possession. Related note: Mitch McConnell’s people continue to hint that he won’t run for re-election, which is super-weird.
Jerry Abramson could run against McConnell. Will it happen? HAHAHAHA. Please. In his dreams.
