The Morning After

Congratulations to Russ Meyer - our new State Representative! The majority of Jessamine County will continue to be well-represented in Frankfort.

And a big win for our Sheriff, Kevin Corman! His strong leadership has earned bipartisan respect which earned him a resounding win.

Admittedly, though, last night was a tough night for Jessamine County Democrats. We had several strong candidates who were unsuccessful at the polls. Scripture says that "weeping may linger for the night. "

But the Psalmist goes on to remind us that "Joy cometh in the morning!" Our work is not done. We must carry on for our Democratic values of equality, fairness, and respect for all people.

Vote on Tuesday!!

On Tuesday, don't forget to VOTE for our Democratic candidates! There are a lot of good candidates on the ballot and it is important that we have the strongest slate possible to carry the day in November!

Polls are open from 6am to 6pm.

One reminder: if you vote straight ticket, don't forget that this will NOT cast a ballot in the non-partisan races which include Nicholasville Mayor, the Nicholasville City Commission, and the judicial races. These are important races so be sure to ensure you've cast your ballot in all the races!

President Obama Recognizes Governor Beshear in the State of the Union #SOTU


Watching the State of the Union? Check out the President's words on our Governor, Steve Beshear:
And if you want to know the real impact this law is having, just talk to Governor Steve Beshear of Kentucky, who’s here tonight.  Kentucky’s not the most liberal part of the country, but he’s like a man possessed when it comes to covering his commonwealth’s families.  “They are our friends and neighbors,” he said.  “They are people we shop and go to church with…farmers out on the tractors…grocery clerks…they are people who go to work every morning praying they don’t get sick.  No one deserves to live that way.”

Steve’s right.  That’s why, tonight, I ask every American who knows someone without health insurance to help them get covered by March 31st.  Moms, get on your kids to sign up.  Kids, call your mom and walk her through the application.  It will give her some peace of mind – plus, she’ll appreciate hearing from you.

After all, that’s the spirit that has always moved this nation forward.  It’s the spirit of citizenship – the recognition that through hard work and responsibility, we can pursue our individual dreams, but still come together as one American family to make sure the next generation can pursue its dreams as well.

Mitt Romney Inc: The White House That Never Was

A newly published 138-page report prepared for candidate Mitt Romney in the days leading up to the 2012 election details plans to restructure the federal government if he won the presidency.  One power point slide intended to be used in his briefing the day after the elections reads, "The White House staff is similar to a holding company, each of which has its own responsibilities, constituents, and work flows."
