Fletcher/Forgy Defeat Northup/McConnell

Tonight, Ernie Fletcher and Larry Forgy have defeated Anne Northup and Mitch McConnell for the first time. The second time will be in the Republican Senate Primary next spring.

With over 70 percent of precincts reporting, the Lexington Herald Leader is showing Ernie Fletcher with 49.57 percent to Anne Northup's 37.88 percent!

Will Governor Fletcher even appear with the Louisville liberal at the Unity Rally on Saturday? My guess is the headquarters will be renamed by then and we'll have another primary on our hands!

Update: The Courier-Journal reports that Northup/McConnell did not get a single vote in Estill County. 0 %. What an absolutely abysmal showing for Mitch McConnell.
