In the 56th House District special election, the Democrats have this guy:
Kay said he wants to see the legislature debate tax reform in order to modernize the system. And in the heart of horse country, he said he also expects casino gambling to be a key issue in the special election, although he said he’s keeping an open mind.
“Now whether I’ll fall down on the side of expanded gaming or against expanded gambling, I’m going to support the thoroughbred industry,” Kay said. “But I can’t say I’ve made up my mind on that issue.”
Who was anointed by Ben Chandler (who lost his own district) and Greg Stumbo, ignoring all other Democrats who have more life experience, have political sense and better chances of getting elected.
Then there’s this:
As the rally was going on, someone with the Youtube account “Otis Stumbo” posted a one minute video set to the tune of George Thorogood’s “One bourbon, one shot and one beer,” with pictures found online showing Kay at parties. One of the pictures used his mug shot from 2010 when he was arrested in Woodford County for driving 26 miles over the speed limit. The video spread through Twitter, including being retweeted by Lourdes Baez-Schrader, the wife of Franklin County Republican Party Chairman Joel Schrader.
The best part was when Adam Edelen showed how completely out-of-touch he is with reality when he claimed Kay is “the next generation of great legislative leaders.” Because most Democrats aren’t fans of having their party leaders pick their candidates for them. Particularly when they have no idea where they stand on issues of such importance.
And Republicans have this mess:
“For nearly a century now, Democrats have controlled the House of Representatives in Frankfort. They’ve followed in the footsteps of President Obama’s failed policies -with crippling taxes, outrageous spending, and an overall hostile environment to small businesses and small business owners… I would like nothing more than to represent our district and send a message to Barack Obama and the Liberals in Washington and Frankfort. And unlike my recently nominated opponent, who has publicly praised Obama’s reelection and liberal agenda, my message is this: It’s time for Republicans to take back the house, return the state government to the people, and finally move the Commonwealth in the right direction….We will win back the house, and it starts with the 56th district.”
He’s backed by the extremists at the faux Family Foundation.
Isn’t that fun?
So here’s the call: send us your dirt on both of these candidates.
