Tradecoat Trey Already Making Moves To Unseat Senator Bunning?

The former Bill Clinton volunteer Trey Grayson already showed Kentucky's Republicans that he does not care about the conservative wing when he attempted to run against Governor Fletcher in the primary and then held a fundraiser in northern Kentucky at the same time as Governor Fletcher's during the general election. Now rumors are flowing out of northern Kentucky that Tradecoat Trey Grayson is already trying to get activists to commit to his camp for the 2010 senate race since he looks to be unable to pressure Senator Bunning to step aside.

Tradecoat Trey, there is a reason Senator Bunning is in the Hall of Fame and you are losing to a candidate nobody has ever heard of. True conservatives don't stab their own in the back. Republican activists should keep this prospect in mind when Tradecoat Trey begs for our support in the coming weeks.

Forgy Can Defeat McConnell As An Independent

It is no secret that many central Kentucky conservatives have been pleading with Larry Forgy to look past the Republican primary and defeat Mitch McConnell as an independent in 2008. There are several reasons this scenario may easily come true:
1. Rudy Giuliani and Mitt Romney are not true conservatives and there is no reason for Larry Forgy to run on the same ticket as them. They're pro-choice and anti-family views will bring down Mitch McConnell and allow Forgy to hold the conservative vote.

2. Governor Fletcher's endorsement. With the endorsement of the Governor, Larry Forgy will hold onto the central Kentucky and rural faction of the Republican Party and have a campaign structure that was already tested by the Louisville liberals led by Northup, McConnell, and Jackson and pounded them in the primary.

3. Greg Scumbo. This is the main reason for Forgy to run as an independent. A large faction of the Democratic Party is not happy with the publicity hound who is not raising any significant money. Even in eastern Kentucky, Forgy will carry a significant portion of the conservative Democratic vote.

4. Bill Harper. There is no secret that Harper can help Forgy carry western Kentucky and his people are not fans of McConnell's.

5. Club for Growth. They are making it clear that the Louisville liberal McConnell will be forced to pay for his support for two tax and spend budgets while pretending he is a conservative...

6. Ask Larry Hopkins. The former Congressman who showed his true colors by endorsing Steve Beshear can best remember what Larry Forgy can do on the stump. Forgy nearly defeated Hopkins with almost no money. This time around, the Club for Growth shows the money will be flowing in freely.

Tradecoat Trey Grayson Supports Casino Gambling In Kentucky

This is really disgraceful. The former Bill Clinton volunteer refuses to support the main tenet of Governor Fletcher's platform, and has the nerve to try to coerce conservatives around the Commonwealth to abandon Governor Fletcher's campaign for his own fundraisers.

An investigation into previous comments made by Tradecoat Trey Grayson turned up this excerpt in a August 21, 2006 Lexington Herald Leader story where Grayson voiced his support for exploring Vegas-style casino gaming in Kentucky:

Democratic Attorney General Greg Stumbo vaulted the issue into the headlines at an Aug. 5 Democratic breakfast in Graves County. He said he'd like to see the state approve casino gambling, and that he wants the first $100 million of revenue from it to wipe out the property tax on vehicles -- one of the most-loathed levies in Kentucky.

That idea has stirred up a buzz on both sides of the aisle as wannabe candidates weigh their options as well as their chances of beating Ernie Fletcher, the Republican incumbent next year.

"I'm wondering if that might change the debate," said Secretary of State Trey Grayson, who is considering a run for the Republican nomination for governor. "I don't remember anyone pushing any kind of tax cut. In the past, people just talked in terms of using the (casino revenue) money to pay for services."

Incredible...Not only does this Tradecoat Trey support casino gaming, but he voiced support for a plan by Greg Scumbo at the same time the Attorney General was in the middle of his witch hunt on Governor Fletcher! Tradecoat Trey goes on:

Grayson said he was intrigued by Stumbo's pitch because he has been considering ways to eliminate the car tax, which brought in $101 million in revenue to the state last year.

Sounds like Grayson needs to add ethics to his civics plan....

Breaking: Tradecoat Trey To Refuse To Appear With Governor Fletcher

Conservatives are now buzzing that word is out that Tradecoat Trey Grayson will refuse to appear on the campaign trail with Governor Fletcher over the next four weeks, but even worse is word that he is planning to publicly condemn the Governor's platform. Sounds like Grayson is trying to bring light to the Greg Stumbo witch hunt to distract the press from Grayson's own scandals. Check back for more details on what Grayson's upcoming speech may contain.

Club For Growth Shifting Anti-Giuliani Funds To Kentucky?

Reports are circulating that former Congressman Pat Toomey has been extremely enthusiastic about Larry Forgy's chances in recent weeks, and is now raising money for the Club for Growth's 2008 efforts. While the Club for Growth was set to get involved in the Republican presidential primaries, a recent lobbying effort by Steve Forbes on Rudy Giuliani's behalf may have appeased some of their concerns. However, that means good news to Kentucky's conservatives as the Club will have more funds to spend in going after the Louisville liberal McConnell and bringing Larry Forgy, a true conservative, to the U.S. Senate.
