Rural Democrats need to be held accountable for their lackadaisical performance in this election. I realize what I just said is generic so let's get specific. I live in Hardin County Kentucky and the Hardin County Democrats didn't get out the vote for Jack Conway. Is that a surprise? No.
Public Policy Polling Kentucky is obviously a conservative state. Conway's ability to win was always going to depend on getting a lot of folks who supported John McCain in 2008 to vote Democratic for the Senate this time around. The most amazing finding on this final poll is that Rand Paul is actually picking up more Obama voters (15%) than Conway is McCain voters (9%). That's the formula for a landslide.
A Courier Journal investigation reveals Matthew Conway, brother of Jack Conway, lied and was warned he was under investigation for possible drug use or trafficking. The investigation also revealed Matthew Conway was warned his home was going to be searched two days before it was searched.
We have the controversial ad run by Jack Conway against tea-party zealot Rand Paul on the front page and now it seems that despite the heat Conway has taken for running it, this ad may be effective. Now, with Rand Paul endorsing a $2000 deductible for Medicare, wanting to cut drug funding for Kentucky, and wanting Americans to work for less going unnoticed if this ad can undo the Mad Doctor and keep him from robbing Kentuckians of federal funding then so be it. It is the truth after all.
It's obvious Rand Paul is more comfortable in the safe confines of a Paducah Area Chamber of Commerce debate where the folks asking questions are, what I consider, FOX friendly right wingers with an agenda to get Rand Paul elected.
