Forgy Hammers McConnell On KET For Backstabbing Governor Fletcher

One thing is clear tonight. The Republicans need a true conservative to hold onto the U.S. Senate seat. Mitch McConnell cannot win reelection. He's alienated over half of Kentucky's Republicans by backstabbing Governor Fletcher and he just gave the liberals the Governor's Mansion.

McConnell is sending out his Louisville liberals to beg Forgy not to run. Maybe he should have thought about this before destroying Kentucky's Republican Party and turning his back on rural conservatives. Its a good thing this hypocrite is being exposed. It won't be long until Senator Forgy is sworn in. The Courier-Journal reports:
But Larry Forgy, the 1995 Republican gubernatorial nominee, blamed Northup, U.S. Sen. Mitch McConnell and Lt. Gov. Steve Pence, who chose not to run again with Fletcher, for the loss.

“It is the result of the primary. We spent $5 million among Republicans fighting over almost nothing except the desire of three or four people in Louisville and party headquarters — including Sen. McConnell, including Steve Pence, Anne Northup and others — to essentially run this man out of office.”...

Forgy said earlier tonight that he blames U.S. Sen. Mitch McConnell and other Republicans for dividing the party.

Williams, in an exasperated tone, pleaded with Forgy not to run against McConnell in the 2008 election.
