Roots Barefoot And
Progressive Page One Hillbilly Report Videos This was my first time to attend the
event in Hopkins County and it was great. Special thanks to Hopkins County
Democratic Party Chair Brenda Harris Glover and all of the Democrats in Hopkins
County. I know I must have called Brenda Harris Glover 5 or 6 times the week
prior to the event and she answered the phone every time and was more than
accommodating. The Hopkins County Democratic Party has a jewel and that jewel is
Brenda Harris Glover. I knew this gal was smart when I received a email from her
and she had a .mac email account, OK some PC users are smart to but I found this
girl to be exceptional.
The event included a great meal.
Four of the Democratic primary Senatorial candidates spoke at the event
and Dale Emmons spoke for
Bruce Lunsford, who couldn't make it to the event. The 4 senatorial
Michael Cassaro, Greg
Fischer, James E. Rice
and Kenneth Stepp.
Heather Ryan 1st
District Congressional candidate gave a rousing speech.
Jerry Lundergan introduced Hillary Clinton and Hillary was well received,
by those in attendance. I hope to have video up of all the senatorial candidates, Heather Ryan and Jerry
Lundergan introducing Hillary Clinton by Sunday evening.
I hope to have video up of Senator Hillary Clinton by Monday.
Thank you Hopkins County, I had one helluva time.

Roots Barefoot And
Progressive Page One Hillbilly Report Videos The Louisville Metro
Democratic Democratic Club sponsored the first Democratic primary senatorial
debate and invited all the candidates from the Louisville area to participate.
Mike Cassaro and
Fischer participated. Bruce Lunsford couldn't make it to the event.
Mark Hebert moderated the debate. The video, in its entirety, is below
and is about 1 hr long. You can watch the video below or go here and watch
segments of the video. Kenneth
Stepp another Democratic candidate for Senator was also at the event, but
did not participate in the debate, because he is not from the Louisville area,
but I did get a short statement from him and the video is below. All of the
candidates have one thing in common, defeat Senator Mitch McConnell. Heather Ryan
Democratic Congressional candidate for Kentucky's 1st Cogressional District was
also at the event and was kind enough to give me a short interview, the video is
below. To find out why Heather Ryan decided to run for Congress
Once again the Louisville Metro Dems out did themselves. Many thanks to them and
all their efforts.
To give all of the candidates as much positive video exposure as
To help any and all the candidates any way I can, to best of my ability,
without actually being a part of their campaign.
We, as Democrats, have a chance to defeat Senator Mitch McConnell and that
is what I'm going to focus on.
I wish all the candidates the best of luck and look forward to seeing each of
them on the campaign trail. I also look forward to all the candidates working
together after the primary to defeat Senator Mitch McConnell.
It is in that spirit that I have posted the videos below of Dr. Mike Cassaro,
Greg Fischer and Bruce Lunsford speaking in Frankfort, Kentucky, in alphabetical order, yesterday March
December 18, 2007 www.ditchmitchky.com www.bluegrassroots.org When I put a Poll up on this site I left Dr. Michael
Cassaro off of the list. Dr. Michael Cassaro please accept my apology. I have
put a new poll up on the left hand side of my blog.
November 28, 2007 www.ditchmitchky.com www.bluegrassroots.org Last night I had the opportunity to attend an AMERICA 2000+
meeting in Louisville. Many thanks to
Dr. Ted and
Olivia Fuchs for inviting me to attend. I wish I had brought my camcorder,
because US Senatorial candidate Michael Cassaro and Greg
Stumbo, who is currently exploring a possible senate run, were there to speak.
Michael Cassaro was impressive, is a very good coherent speaker and quick on his
feet. Michael Cassaro, if I understood him correctly, is a Doctor and a lawyer.
Greg Stumbo was in rare form and I do mean rare form, this guy can speak. He
delivered a very good coherent speech and kept the audience laughing a good part
of the time. Both men answered questions from the
audience at length. Sorry I don't have video of Michael
and Greg, but I did get a photo. See below.
