Compared to the ADA, i disagree with them on crime but the only dems to win statewide in KY are moderates. even with the looming tide in the "New South," my friend Jonathan Miller was re-elected.
I hate being labeled and would just like to be a Democrat but we have a growing number of Conservative Democrats in KY. Unless I'm a moderate, I am unable to get elected.
Adam Smith ran in KY2, was DFA-endorsed, and still got clobbered. This was in a district that for 40 years was held by a Dem, now it's been GOP for 10 years. The seat is held by a guy who pledge 3 terms and would be finished. He just got re-elected to a 5th or 6th term.
