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!

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.

CNBC Debate Moderators’ Behavior So Reprehensible RNC Steps In!

Republican National Committee Flexes Muscle in Letter to NBCAfter the painfully inept moderation of the third National Republican Debate in Boulder Colorado this week, the Republican National Convention showed a little muscle by telling NBC – the parent company of CNBC – that they have had enough.

For those conservatives watching this debate, the approach of the moderators was breathtaking… and not in the good way.

The plus side is that we got to see what a wonderful group of well-prepared, class acts we have running on the Republican side of the ticket. They were impressive.

The candidates did a fine job of standing up to those obnoxious moderators and their blatantly skewed questions, while respecting each other, and we are proud of them for doing so. However, it’s always nice to see our national organization step up and flex, too.

And yes, the candidate’s statement that the biggest Super-Pac the Democrats have is the mainstream media is spot-on!

From Reince Priebus, Chairman, Republican National Committee, in a letter sent to NBC News Chairman, Andrew Lack:

“…pending further discussion between the Republican National Committee (RNC) and our presidential campaigns, we are suspending the partnership with NBC News for the Republican primary debate at the University of Houston on February 26, 2016…The CNBC network is one of your media properties, and its handling of the debate was conducted in bad faith…

CNBC billed the debate as one that would focus on “the key issues that matter to all voters—job growth, taxes, technology, retirement and the health of our national economy.” That was not the case. Before the debate, the candidates were promised an opening question on economic or financial matters. That was not the case. Candidates were promised that speaking time would be carefully monitored to ensure fairness. That was not the case. Questions were inaccurate or downright offensive. The first question directed to one of our candidates asked if he was running a comic book version of a presidential campaign, hardly in the spirit of how the debate was billed.

While debates are meant to include tough questions and contrast candidates’ visions and policies for the future of America, CNBC’s moderators engaged in a series of “gotcha” questions, petty and mean-spirited in tone, and designed to embarrass our candidates…

I have tremendous respect for the First Amendment and freedom of the press. However, I also expect the media to host a substantive debate on consequential issues important to Americans. CNBC did not.

While we are suspending our partnership with NBC News and its properties, we still fully intend to have a debate on that day…”

Bravo RNC! Kudos.
