The KY House is 63% Republican and the KY Senate is 71% Republican. Clearly whatever residual strength Democrats had outside their base there is rapidly dwindling.

And as clearly - without running candidates with crossover (far beyond "base") appeal Democrats can't win statewide. Exactly because this reason.

Kentucky is too far gone no matter who the Democrats run. It was a miracle they held on as long as they did, but their luck has finally run out.
Yeah, that's why Democrats picked up 8 seats in the state Senate this year that Trump won with 80%+. I really wouldn't be so confident, if I were you.

The same thing happened in Oklahoma, no?
no?we actually lost a ton of dixiecrat seats, iirc

I didn't follow them closely, but I remember a lot of people here jerking off to the fact that Democrats were winning lots of Trump landslide districts in Oklahoma special elections. This was also used as justification for why Edmondson could/would win.

I think the Democrats could take back the KY Governorship with the right candidate and the right campaign.  The Democrats in Kentucky, at a local level, are not as decimated as, say, the Democrats in West Virginia or Arkansas.

I also wonder if McConnell won't covertly help the Democrats in order to eliminate Bevin, who is clearly a rival, not just as a primary challenger, but as the top Republican in the State.  Normally, the Governor is at the top rung of Kentucky politics, but Kentucky's Senators have immense prominence right now, so the Governor isn't the leader of his party in the way past Governors have been. 

Bevin is much like Rick Scott; he's not real likable, but he is wealthy, can self-fund, and has a coherent record focused on a few issues that resonate with who they need to resonate with.  Scott, as well, was an underdog for re-election in 2014, and look at him now.  Bevin could lose, but he has more going for him than any Democrat right now when you factor in the advantages of being the incumbent.

I'm not too surprised to see Bevin is running again. For anyone more knowledgable of KY politics than me -- is there any reason Bevin decided to pick a new Lt Gov running mate this time?

lol . Picking a black women than a hispanic man. The dems might have a slight chance if they go after the hispanic man. They could atleast win Elliot then.

What evidence is there that Elliot County is MORE racist than any other rural county in KY?

The primary profession in Elliott is probably prison guard, I don't know if that makes them more or less racist than their neighbors.  Though EKY is filled with prisons.

Just saying, Elliott enjoys this pedestal of being a "Deplorable™" place on this forum, and it consistently receives more negative attention from lefties and independents than other rural Kentucky counties that have been Republican WAY longer and, you know, didn't vote for a Black man twice.  I find that completely nonsensical, LOL.

I haven't seen this hate? But if your point is true, it is probably it is the most recent to snap away from dems, and lefties are still mad.
