Brett Guthrie filed for re-election to congress (KY-02) last week and there was little, if any, fanfare.
Since the holidays are upon us, I thought I’d give you readers the gift of poking through his fun (hypocritical) press release about how he’s keeping everything positive. 100% puppies and rainbows.
Check it out (bold emphasis ours):
(Bowling Green, KY) Congressman Brett Guthrie, who has represented Kentucky’s second congressional district since January 2009, has filed for reelection in 2016.
“In the last two elections, Kentuckians sent a clear message that they prefer conservative principles in Frankfort and Washington. It has been a great honor to implement those principles in Congress and I look forward to continuing the hard work,” said Guthrie. “We don’t own these seats; the people do. I intend to run an aggressive, positive campaign that carries a conservative message to all corners of the second district. Our conservative Republican values of creating economic opportunity and having a strong national security are critical to our nation’s future.”
After winning 69 percent of the vote in the 2014 election, Guthrie returned to Washington D.C. to fight Obama’s destructive agenda and to promote a positive, conservative agenda. Guthrie was the only member to pass legislation into law chipping away at Obamacare’s mandates (the PACE Act). The Protecting Affordable Coverage for Employees Act protects small to mid-sized employers from Obamacare regulations, providing continuity in coverage and preventing increased costs.
In addition to fighting Obamacare, Guthrie also introduced and supported legislation on many other topics including funding our national security, fighting against Obama’s War on Coal, giving more local control on education, improving workforce development, and enhancing transportation, including designating the William H. Natcher Parkway as a future I-65 spur.
“I believe that with more Republican influence in Frankfort and a GOP congressional majority passing solid conservative reforms in Washington, Kentuckians will be pleased with where we can take our state in the years ahead. I look forward to talking with voters across the district who share a vision of leaving a better world behind for future generations. That’s why I ran for Congress in the first place, and that is what motivates me every single day,” added Guthrie.
It’s all positive… puppies… rainbows… then… NOBAMA!!!1! Brett, of course, couldn’t come up with that stuff on his own, so the Scott Jennings crew penned the release. The more they can keep the 2nd district afraid of the black man in the White House, the better Brett’s chances.
You can tell he doesn’t have much to offer or his team would realize a new boogeyman is coming to town. Her name is Hillary Clinton. And the only thing scarier than a black man to the low information racists Guthrie tries to court? A woman who isn’t subservient and ignorant. Guessing it’s only a matter of time until they switch from racism to sexism. Should be tons of fun.
You folks excited for 2016? The Democrats don’t have anything to offer in Kentucky, so you can expect the fearsome Republican froth to be thick. Since scared white man rage is still at level 10 in the Commonwealth, anybody the Kentucky Democratic Party does trot out will likely be just a hair to the left of Kim Davis and Donald Trump.
