I cannot believe Campbell was Dukakis's best county in the state. I'm from Campbell County, and I remember a lot of nutjobs here complaining about Dukakis being "communist" and all.

At the time, this was easily the most conservative large county in Kentucky, but still it had slightly more registered Democrats than Republicans. Anyone who had any power though was a Republican. This doesn't explain why Dukakis would do so well in a Democratic primary in Campbell County.

Paul Simon recieved 22% of the vote in Livingston county.

That's because Livingston is almost in Illinois.
