Less Than Five Points
We’re talking less than five points. That is the polling gap in Kentucky between Matt Bevin and the liberal Democrat he is running against. Have you donated to Matt yet? Less than five points and the race is not for another month — this is totally winnable. We need to get Matt Bevin fully funded. Look, there is not another campaign right now in the | Read More »
Matt Bevin for Governor
I backed Matt Bevin in his Senate race. He is a profoundly good guy. But when he ran for Governor, my impression of the race was that the state was ready to move on. And I did not back him. I should have. The top two candidates began beating the crap out of each other in a nasty, nasty way and Matt just showed the | Read More »
Kim Davis Should Have Done This
Kim Davis, the Clerk of Rowan County, took an oath to faithfully execute the laws of the Commonwealth of Kentucky and the United States. After Anthony Kennedy ruled that gay marriage was the law of the land, Kim Davis stopped issuing marriage licenses to anyone. I think she took an oath to faithfully execute the laws and she has broken that oath. She did so | Read More »
The Situation With Kim Davis
Kim Davis is the elected Clerk of Rowan County, Kentucky. She has refused to issue marriage licenses in Rowan County over gay marriage. My thinking on this is more complicated than a good or bad, yes or no, binary situation. I think government employment needs to be open to all, not just those who go along with present secular zeitgeist. A government cannot be composed | Read More »
These states are standing up to runaway courts
Pardon me if I was the last person to hear about this, but I was glad over the weekend to read that Governor Mary Fallin refuses to remove the Ten Commandments from the Oklahoma capitol, despite some crazy court insisting otherwise. She explained her decision by saying “Oklahoma is a state where we respect the rule of law, and we will not ignore the state | Read More »

It’s over: Matt Bevin is the Republican nominee for Kentucky Governor.
As Hot Air notes: James Comer took the high road and did not make life difficult after the recanvass. So they are all one big, happy fleet now in the Kentucky Republican party. No, really: "Happy Together" from Steven Reese on Vimeo. So no hard feelings, and time to encourage Jack Conway to explore his options in the private sector. Moe Lane PS: Matt Bevin | Read More »
Update on Kentucky-GOV GOP Primary: James Comer takes the high road.
Come, I will conceal nothing from you: I guessed wrong on this one. I expected a bitter rear-guard action. Would that I was always wrong in such a pleasant fashion.

Matt Bevin Wins
[Revised given the polling at the end] I did not endorse Matt Bevin for the Kentucky Governor’s race. I endorsed Hal Heiner a month ago when it seemed all was lost for Bevin and the third man in the race, James Comer, was worth beating. Matt Bevin ran against what the media had caricatured him as and he cleaned up. He ran a clean race | Read More »
Hal Heiner for Governor of Kentucky
In the race for Governor of Kentucky, I have contributed $250.00 to Hal Heiner’s campaign and support him for Governor. I do not know him. I know some people around him. But I have been paying close attention to Heiner, his positions, and the state of the race. Heiner already has a 14 point lead. He is running a very solid race. I do like | Read More »
Michelle Nunn cowardly refuses to stand with Barack Obama.
There is a hierarchy in the Democratic party, and when one enjoys the hereditary rank in it that Michelle Nunn does then one can expect special consideration.

Democrat in Kentucky Senate Race May ‘F*ck’ the Coal Industry if Elected
On today’s edition of Coffee and Markets, Brad Jackson is joined by Lachlan Markay to discuss the Senate race in Kentucky, some new video showing that the Democrat’s candidate may be lying about her support of the coal industry and what the GOP’s race to take back the Senate looks like with only a month until election day.
