Something the Kentucky Democratic Republican Party doesn’t want you to think about: how November brought the election of a Republican as Elliott County Judge-Executive.
Carl Fannin is, based on what we can tell, the first Republican elected to county office there in more than 70 years.
You may remember his opponent, Georgia Ison. She’d previously been indicted while County Court Clerk. Steve Beshear appointed her to replace the former Judge-Executive, who also was indicted while in office.
Fannin was the only Republican to win in Elliott County. No other local or statewide candidate was able to do so.
The amazing thing? Less than four percent of Elliott County is registered Republican.
It’s a testament to how disjointed and broken Steve Beshear has allowed his party to become. In the land of Rocky Adkins, Walter Blevins, Jr. and John Will Stacy, no less. It’s a preview of what’s to come in 2012.
