Its Time For Kentucky Republicans To Nominate a US Senate Candidate Who Can Win In 2008

Mitch McConnell failed Kentucky's conservatives by undermining Governor Ernie Fletcher and backing former Louisville Rep. Anne Northup. Now his reelection numbers are well under 50 percent, and its time for the Republican Party to nominate a candidate who has a real chance to win in 2008. That candidate is Larry Forgy.

Forgy is a Franklin County attorney and President of Health Kentucky, a non-profit that gives free health care to underprivileged patients in the Commonwealth. In 1995, he was the Republican nominee for Governor and received nearly 49 percent of the vote. Forgy can win in 2008. Kentucky Republicans need a nominee who will stand up for our conservative values, our veterans, our schools, and not just Anne Northup and George W. Bush.
