Republicans are throwing in the towel in the Governor’s race in Kentucky, even with all that free advertising from Kim Davis, Ted Cruz, and Mike Huckabee.
The Republican Governor’s Association has stopped running TV ads for Matt Bevin with a little more than a month to go in Kentucky’s competitive governor’s race.
The association has spent $3 million on six ads for Bevin, mostly attacking his Democratic opponent, Jack Conway, for supporting the policies of Democratic President Barack Obama. But with two other governor’s races this fall RGA spokesman Jon Thompson said the group is “re-evaluating what is best for us to do.”
After spending a million dollars of his own money to win a 4-way primary, I bet his wife and kids are hacked off. “Oh no, we can’t go to Europe this summer because Dad played Republican Roulette and lost.”
Last year, Democrat Jack Conway, who is currently the Attorney General of Kentucky, refuse to appeal the federal judge’s decision on gay marriage.
By appealing, he said, he would be defending discrimination “and that I will not do.”
Conway said he had prayed on the decision and felt he is doing what is right. He said that he was sworn to defend both the constitutions of Kentucky and the United States.
People thought he had pretty much written off his political career by doing that, but apparently people are sick to death of Kim Davis and her buttload of hate. Even in Kentucky.
So let’s take up a collection and and send Kim, Mike, and Ted on a countrywide tour.
