Daniel Elliott, Republican Candidate for 54th District House Seat

The Boyle and Casey County Republican Executive Committees met this evening at the Junction City Community Center to elect a candidate for the seat vacated by Mike Harmon.

Mike Biagi, Executive Director of the Republican Party of Kentucky conducted the meeting and counted the votes cast by voting members of the Committees.

The following candidates were nominated:  Daniel Elliott, Tom Ellis, Steve Evans and James Monroe.

Each nominated candidate was given 3 minutes to speak to the group and 5 minutes for a question and answer session.  After that process votes were cast.

Votes were counted by Mike Biagi and each candidate was given the opportunity to have an observer be present for the counting process.

Only one round of votes was necessary to select Daniel Elliott as our candidate.

Please join us to support Daniel during this Special Election process to help our party maintain this very important House seat.  We are all going to have to work together by volunteering to get the word out that the Republican Party has an excellent candidate to further our conservative agenda in Frankfort.

We will be sending more information about events and volunteer opportunities in the near future.

Mac Brown Elected Chairman of RPK

The Republican Party of Kentucky announced today that Mac Brown has been elected as Chairman of the Republican Party of Kentucky by its Executive Committee.

J. McCauley “Mac” Brown Means Business

J. McCauley “Mac” Brown is Vice President of Brown-Forman Corporation, with responsibilities that include a wide and varied range of business planning, family governance, and strategic topics, and he serves as a member of the Corporate Strategy Council and past member of the B-F / Brown Family Committee. He has also led and been involved in many philanthropic organizations in Kentucky.

“I am humbled by the vote of confidence from Republican leaders from around the state, and I accept this opportunity to lead the Republican Party of Kentucky. The party is unified and prepared to move our state forward. In 2016, we will do our part to elect a Republican president, support Senator Paul, and take our last bastion of liberalism—the Kentucky State House—and turn it red.”

Brown will bring a business perspective to the party to develop meaningful long-term strategies that continue to capitalize on Kentucky’s changing electorate and the emergence of a growing number of qualified Republican candidates for elected office.

A New Political Landscape in Kentucky

The political alignment in Kentucky has changed significantly since President Obama was first elected seven years ago. Since then, Republican voter registration has grown by over 200,000, nearly nine times as much as Democratic registration. Because of the determined efforts of the party, Republicans have turned this shift into success at the ballot box.

A Changing of the Republican Guard

Outgoing RPK Chairman Steve Robertson served as Chair for the past eight years, during which the party experienced consistent growth and success, capped by the recent election victories in which Republicans won five out of seven state constitutional offices, including the governor’s office.

Robertson remarked, “It has been a privilege to lead the party and watch it grow. Over the last eight years, the party has placed great emphasis on developing its infrastructure and organizational depth, which laid the foundation for the historic wins we saw on election night. I have complete confidence in Mac’s ability to expand on the gains that the Republican Party has steadily secured.” Continue reading
