We’ve heard from two sources who attended Owsley & Christy-backed Greg Fischer’s Christmas party that he announced he’ll run for U.S. Senate and drop several million of his own dollars. Guess he didn’t realize dropping that kind of news at a Christmas party would generate gossip. Or maybe he did.
One thing is certain: having a hundred in-the-know politicos and elected officials tell Fischer he shouldn’t run did nothing to bring his ego down to earth.
So. Two guys wasting untold millions in a Democratic primary for senate. First Bruce and now Greg? Couldn’t make it any more fun if we tried. Mitch McConnell is probably eating this crap up. Literally licking his chops.
What’s unfortunate for both Bruce Lunsford and Greg Fischer, though, is that Andrew Horne is already pulling in endorsements and has been elevated by organizations like ActBlue and national veterans groups. With Lunsford and Fischer inches away, labor will jump on the Horne boat quite soon. And the dirt will begin to fly.
