Michael Kelley has been making the rounds in northern Kentucky. Kelley, we reported in August, is the Oldham Co physician taking Geoff Davis on in Kentucky’s 4th U.S. Congressional District.
Getting such a great response from the Democratic elite of the north is a good sign for Kelley.
From Crowley’s column:
“The last seven years (of the Bush administration) have shown me what poor quality leadership and bad ideas can do to damage our country,” Kelley said at the Kenton County gathering, at Walt’s Hitching Post in Fort Wright.
“And because of that, I felt I can’t sit on the sidelines anymore,” he said. “I need to stand up and try to make a difference.”
Kelley said he favors a quick withdrawal of the American military from Iraq, an expansion of the children’s health-care program known as SCHIP and a reduction of the influence of money and campaign contributions in politics.
