Progressives In Rural America
Is it possible that Jim Bunning contacted Governor Steve Beshear and told him if the Republicans fielded a candidate against him in the primary, he, Jim Bunning would resign from the Senate and Governor Steve Beshear could replace him with a Democrat? Could it be that's why Governor Steve Beshear endorsed Daniel Mongiardo as the Democratic Candidate for the US Senate? Is it possible that supporters of Jack Conway, like Jerry Abramson, Greg Stumbo, Crit Luallen, Congressman John Yarmuth and Congressman Ben Chandler got wind of Governor Steve Beshear's communications with Senator Jim Bunning and decided they wanted someone other than Daniel Mongiardo to replace Senator Jim Bunning when, he, Senator Jim Bunning resigned?
Could this be why Trey Grayson has formed an exploratory committee, a move that allows him to raise and spend campaign money? When he, Trey Grayson, has said repeatedly "I have no plans to run against Senator Bunning," Grayson said in the statement. "This exploratory committee will allow me to travel the commonwealth, meet with potential supporters and lay the foundation for a campaign."
As we all know truth is sometimes stranger than fiction and Kentucky politics can even be stranger than truth or fiction.
I suggest if we are Patient the answers to the above questions will be forthcoming, because most of the folks I know involved in politics are like "old refrigerators" they can't keep anything.
