The Republican Party of Kentucky just announced that RPK Chairman Steve Robertson will hold a press conference at 2:30 P.M. in front of the Governor’s mansion to discuss political fundraising that takes place inside the mansion.
Wonder if Robertson will bring up all the fundraising Ernie Fletcher did inside the mansion?
Yeah, we’ll believe that when we see it.
If any media types attend, let us know what goes down.
UPDATE @ 2:04:
Just learned that a “Capitol Club” Democratic fundraiser will be held in the Governor’s Mansion on June 24 from 5-7 P.M.. Looks like every Democratic elected official is on the host list. The minimum “annual membership” is $300.
