1. Oh please oh please let this carry over to the General Election.

I want to see the voters wipe that smirk off of Mitch's lipless face.

9. No, but they could sit home if Amy doesn't court them better

Ignoring Louisville and Lexington, especially the Breonna Taylor situation wasn't a wise move and there's some anger with her about that. She's spending way too much time on the farms and not enough time cultivating the Democratic base, which she needs to come out if she has any prayer of winning.

11. They're not much of a "base" if they'd let McConnell win. I think she's wise to try to broaden

her support.

12. What do they have to vote for if she claims to support Trump?

I donít care how annoyed people are with voters, the job of a candidate and their campaign is to win. It is astonishing to me that some Democrats are content to let our elected leaders voice support for Trump in order to somehow triangulate and win, but express annoyance that supporting Trump comes with some blowback.

Harry Truman knew what he was talking about when he said, given a choice between a Republican and a Democrat who acts like a Republican, voters are gonna pick the Republican.

Amy has run a terrible campaign. 40 million dollars and she barely beat her opponent who spent $3 million. Her desire not to offend means that she has no values. This is actually not how one wins support from Independents, let alone voters who donít vote all the time.

What exactly has changed for poor people in Kentucky over the last 15 years? Trump sucks, sure, but outside of covid, has life been all that different for non political people?

I feel like when Democrats say f voters, they are picturing some spoiled white male bernie bro type, and not a single mom with two parttime jobs and rickety childcare who rarely pays a lot of attention to politics because voting has never made much of a difference for her daily life.

Give her something to vote for and maybe she will get up an hour early or stand in line for two hours to do it. But she doesnít owe us a thing, we are the ones who owe her. And maybe if we actually make government work again, we will earn her vote next time as well.

15. That's a gross distortion of Amy's position. And why are you blaming her for the last 15 years? nt

14. To a point. But not by agreeing with Trump which I hope she doesn't.

I don't expect it to happen.

It is part of the reason imo that Indiana Senator Donnelly lost in 2018.

5. democrats had a hot race and Republicans did not

Moscow Mitch had essentially no opposition and the Democratic contest was a real horse race, right down to the wire.

6. That's probably because the Democratic race was competitive

Whereas the Republican one (I assume) was not.

13. The first thing i did on the day the results came in, was to compare

voter totals in both primaries. It was quite encouraging.
