Anyone in KY going to tell me why a first term R governor would ever be in trouble for re-election in the first place? IS there some sort of scandal or something going on? Because otherwise, I am hard pressed to understand how the D ever would have had any lead.
Or is this all just bogus polling?
The big issue is that Bevin is trying to fix the broken Kentucky Retirement System and the Teacher’s Retirement System. It is a mess after not being properly funded and mismanaged by decades of democrat control. The teacher’s union has always been a pawn of the democrats and is leading the charge. The teachers are too stupid (but I repeat myself) to see that if a fix isn’t made that there won’ be anything down the road.
We dont yet have a lock on statewide offices like we do on the electoral votes for President. We havent had a GOP Attorney General since the 1950s.
West Virginia is similar.
It’s the freakin’ teachers
THE FREAKIN TEACHERS, WHO DESTROYED NEW JERSEY AND SO MANY OTHER STATES...INCLUDING THE REPULSIVE STATE OF CALIFORNIA.
When all the disasters are examined to see what caused the BIGGEST disaster, it will be when
TEACHERS FORMED THEIR UNIONS. Once respected, now reviled.
