The 2016 Primary is Here for Kentucky!

Tomorrow, May 17th is the Republican Primary. Yes, we voted for President in the Kentucky Caucus, but now it’s time to vote for our State Representative, our State Senator, and our U.S. Senator.

Remember, there is no Democratic Opposition for the State Senator candidates – so one of the individuals running on the Republican Ballot WILL BE our next State Senator, representing Boyle, Lincoln and Pulaski Counties!

Please see the sample ballot below to determine your choice and get out the vote tomorrow!

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.
