WKYT-Lexington Reports On Draft Forgy Efforts

The question should not be whether Larry Forgy will attend the "unity rally." it was Larry Forgy who encouraged Republicans to stay united. The real question people should be answering is if there can even be a unity rally now, and if so, will Anne Northup and Mitch McConnell stand with Governor Fletcher?


A website urging Larry Forgy to challenge U.S. Senator Mitch McConnell in next year’s Republican Primary is getting some national attention. It has also been featured on numerous state political blogs. DraftForgy.Com features quotes from Forgy displaying his agitation with McConnell. Forgy has said the senator hasn’t done enough to help Governor Fletcher. McConnell is calling for a Republican unity rally in Frankfort this Saturday. Will Forgy be there? Even as returns were rolling in Tuesday night, Forgy again called Anne Northup’s campaign…. ‘the work of Mitch McConnell.’ Both parties have some healing to do after a factional primary season.
