Frankfort, May 23, 2008—Party leaders and former candidates
gathered at Kentucky Democratic Party (KDP) Headquarters to pledge their support
for United States Senate Nominee Bruce Lunsford.
Governor Steve Beshear, KDP Chair Jennifer Moore, Attorney General Jack Conway, Auditor Crit Luallen, and Treasurer Todd Hollenbach were joined by Lunsford’s primary opponents Greg Fischer and representatives of Michael Cassaro’s campaign. Andrew Horne was also in attendance.
“We are embarking on an exciting six months,” said Governor Beshear. “We have the opportunity for real change in Kentucky and across the United States.”
While unable to attend, his other primary opponents have also pledged their full support for Lunsford’s campaign to unseat Senator Mitch McConnell.
“We cannot afford six more years of Mitch McConnell,” said Moore. “We cannot afford to send back to Washington a senator who values gamesmanship over statesmanship.”
Greg Fischer pledged his support for the Lunsford campaign. “Today there are no differences, it’s time to come together as a party and return Mitch McConnell to the private sector.”
Lunsford expressed his thanks to his primary opponents for embracing his campaign and emphasized the need reverse the failed policies embraced by Mitch McConnell.
“It’s time we stop squandering the wealth and prestige of this nation internationally,” said Lunsford.
