Kentucky Conservative Democrats

Berry Craig: Any Democrat running for the U.S. House, Senate or the presidency in the Bluegrass State has a tough slog. Kentucky is one of the most conservative states in the most conservative western industrial democracy.

McConnell’s Knotty Problem

Grimes Beating McConnell

Berry Craig: In any event, few tea partiers will likely go for Grimes. But more some might hop on the David Patterson bandwagon. Patterson is the almost unknown Libertarian third-party candidate.

Berry Craig: What scares Republicans the most is an America that is becoming less white, less conservative and less male dominated. They fret that a more diverse and more tolerant America is potentially a more Democratic America.
