Trump backed black conservative wins GOP primary for Kentucky governor | Eastern North Carolina Now

Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron, a black conservative endorsed by Donald Trump has won the Republican nomination for Governor of Kentucky, handily winning the primary in a multi-candidate field.  Cameron is Kentucky's first black statewide elected official and its first Republican attorney general in 70 years.  He will face incumbent Democrat Governor Andy Bashear in November.

Kentucky is one of two states that has an off year election for governor in 2023.

The other state with an election for governor in 2023 is Louisiana, where the Democrat incumbent is retiring.  The primary will not be held until October, and the frontrunner is considered to be Attorney General Jeff Landry.

There is a strong possiblity of the GOP picking up both Democrat held gubenatorial seats that are up this year.

It made Fetterman incapable of doing the job. It was actually cruel to him when the Democrats did not replace him with someone who was capable. If you have warched him in the Senate, he is clueless. It is sad the way the Democrats are using him. But he was also a whack job before the stroke.

Nothing about having a stroke makes one an embarrassment. What the hell is wrong with you?

You on the extreme left, Little Bobbie, all supported Fetterman, whso was a far left whack job even before his stroke, and cannot function mentally since the stroke. He is still an embarassment who cannot even read a teleprompter today. HW has had more mental accuity than Getterman by a country mile, and also more so than Biden himself.

HW said what ever he was told to say, unfortunately not in a way he could hide his mental illness and general to many hits to the head affect. And yet right wingers voted for him because he is ..wait for Fooled absolutely no one. Extremism fails b because it's not often based in reality.

While neither Walker nor Warnock was hitting on too much in brain power, at least Walker had enough common sense to support solid economic, national security, and public safety goals. Warnock totally lacked common sense. Warnock is not too different from Hank Johnson.

Never said HW was dumber than Hank Johnson. Said he was dumber than a sack of dirt.

Only a "woke" loon like LIttle Bobbie would think Walker any dumber of a Georgia politiican than Georgia Democrat Congressman Hank Johnson who told a Congressional committee he was afraid that the island of Guam would tip over and capsize.

Warnock is also dumb as a box of rocks, so Walker did not have much to have to compete against in terms of brain power. Walker was also light years ahead of Fetterman in terms of mental accuity.

Bobbie's far left extremism fails because he thinks Johnson, Fetterman, and Warnock are smart. As far as not being based in reality, Hank Johnson is the one who takes the cake and Fetterman is not far behind.

See this is why extremism fails. It’s just not based in reality. Regardless of politics, and being a once great football player, HW is a dope. If you can’t see this I would argue you lack credibility.

Herschel Walker is far smarter than both Warnock and that scrawny White kid, both Democratic Socialist senators "elected" in Georgia ... just look at these two idiots' voting records.

Herschel Walker would have at least had the good sense to vote Right and not Stupid.

My father, who spent much of his life working in south Georgia, once joked, but in a most serious manner back when Jimma Carter was president, that "Junior Samples was the smartest man to ever come out of Georgia, and Billy Carter was runner-up."

In times exemplified by the 2020 and the 2022 elections in Georgia, one should give great pause to wonder: Was Robert Earle Deatherage expertly speaking truth to satire way back in 1977.

If you would vote for Fetterman over his Muslim opponent Oz because you thought Fetterman had a properly functioning brain, then maybe you should call yourself a racist.

I watched the Georgia Senate debate, and Walker came across as at least as smart as his Democrat opponent Warnock. What threw that race was the biased Democrat media's feedng frenzy on Walker's personal life while ignoring worse transgressions in that of Warnock.

For one thing, Walker is a heck of a lot smarter than Hank Johnson who thought the island of Guam was in danger of tipping over and capsizing.

In any election, you only have the choices that are on the ballot. If I had been voting in Georgia in that election, it would have definitely have been for Hershell Walker because he was by far the better choice of the two options. I might have wished I would have had an even better choice, but those were the two at hand.

If you would vote for HW because you think he is smart, you are racist. The guy is an idiot.
