Jason Miller has some sort of criminal rap sheet too, right?

I believe he's the one that fathered a kid out of wedlock with a nightclub stripper in Miami (or somewhere in Florida) and then got sued by the baby mama. He was just trying to peacefully live out his Christian values.

Edit: I think he fathered another kid out of wedlock, but impregnated a stripper and then had her take an abortion pill which caused the mother to be hospitalized.

Trump is also declining.  Look at a video of him talking 10 years ago versus today.  It's like night and day.  He has always been dopey and incredibly shallow, but he used to be coherent.  

I agree.

AJ Delgado is one person involved

It is looking like Charles Booker wiped out Amy McGrath in Louisville with over 80% of the in-person votes going his way and pushing him into the lead. This would probably be the biggest victory for progressives in a primary this year.

Congrats. Whatever slim chance McConnell had of losing is gone but at least you got a progressive nominated in Kentucky that will get blown out.

McGrath couldn't beat Andy Barr in a blue tsunami, but she was going to beat McConnell? Also, do you really want a Democratic Senator who would have voted in favor of Brett Kavanaugh?

I'd prefer a blue win anywhere, but there is part of me that really wants the Dems to take the Senate with McConnell still there so Mitch has to go back and face a vote to remove him as minority leader.

Do you not understand this is Kentucky? I would want a Democratic senator who voted in favor of Kavanaugh over McConnell. That was very likely not going to happen but it's laughable that nominating a progressive in Kentucky is some victory.

Will Louisville get to vote in Nov?

The base of the Democratic party in that state is overwhelmingly African-American. Why not follow the same template as South Carolina and run an African-American candidate who is better suited to drive up turnout among the voter base. Furthermore, Amy McGrath had a chance, in a lean-R/toss up district to win, in a year which there was a blue tsunami on Congress, and she still came up short to Andy Barr.

The hope is that with an African-American nominee Louisville/Louisville Metro will turn out at a higher percentage than they otherwise would have with McGrath at the top of the ticket. I would guess the murder of Breonna Taylor was a motivating force for some votes in the Louisville area and Booker is a hometown son that can continue to speak to that anger and channel that energy.

Mitch McConnell is licking his chops to go against a socialist in Kentucky. The state that has elected the likes of McConnell, Paul and Massie. Andy Beshear didn't win statewide office by being a socialist.

still pretty early - looks like 1/2 the vote is counted?

Bad news that Mitch has 20% more votes than the democratic field.

Andy Bashear ran against Matt Bevin under a cloud of scandal hanging over Bevin. Bevin's favorable numbers had dropped and he was (I believe) having the FBI look into a number of his pardon's as Governor. They'd call McGrath a looney liberal or socialist just the same as they would Booker. They'd run TV ads depicting McGrath being cozy with Washington liberals like Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi, just the same as they will do to Booker. You can't not run a candidate because of how the other side might brand you.

Charles Booker has now taken the lead, albeit by 3,000 votes, over Amy McGrath in Kentucky. 

Fascinating.  He could win with a strong tailwind.  Mitch will cheat of course.

It probably won't matter either way, Booker or McGrath, but I think following a similar playbook as is being done in South Carolina with Jamie Harrison, isn't a bad strategy for Kentucky Democrats. McGrath had her shot against Andy Barr and fell short.

She was the darling of Schumer's fundraising efforts.   However,  per a lot of the nevertrump crowd, she was a terrible candidate.  Something like an uber Karen.

I don't think Booker will beat the Kremlin from Kentucky in the end if I had to place a bet, I just feel he's better positioned and ran a better campaign than McGrath did, to give the Democrats any shot. It's a similar template to what Democrats are doing in South Carolina trying to unseat Lindsay.

Harrison isn't a socialist and is a corporate lobbyist. He stands more of a chance than Booker.
