I wish everyone would just hush, as us hillbillies say, about an Alison Lundergan Grimes candidacy for Governor in 2015. It is very obvious that Rural Kentuckians rejected her candidacy for U.S. Senate. Now, does that stinging rebuke translate to next year's race for Governor? Well, she may not get annihilated like she did against McConnell but she has NO hope of winning the Rural Kentucky vote.
Rural Kentucky is back in the cat-bird seat in Kentucky politics. Why? Because of the fractured nature of the Kentucky Democratic Party, namely the mile wide chasm that exists between our cherished ideologies.
