Northup Refuses To Attend Unity Rally As Larry Forgy Gears Up Challenge To Mitch McConnell

Larry Forgy told the Louisville liberals that he would be forced to mount a campaign for Senate if Mitch McConnell and Anne Northup refused to rally around our Governor. They simply continue to refuse to listen. Reports are circulating that Ernie Fletcher will name either Larry Forgy or a Forgy-loyalist as chairman of the Republican Party, giving Larry Forgy a great platform to mount a Senate campaign against Mitch McConnell in 2008. From the Lexington Herald Leader:
The two Republicans defeated by Gov. Ernie Fletcher in the GOP primary for governor will not stand beside him during a unity rally scheduled for 6 p.m. Saturday at party headquarters in Frankfort...

Jackson said Northup will not play a role in Fletcher's campaign. "She's not going to take an active role in politics for the foreseeable future," he said.
