Democrats maintain control of Kentucky House of Representatives

Democrats will keep control of the Kentucky House of Representatives following Tuesday’s election, turning back a push by Republicans to lead the chamber for the first time since 1921.

Democrats kept 54 of the 100 House seats, the same number they had going into the election.

House Speaker Greg Stumbo, D-Prestonsburg, said Democrats “are very lucky and blessed” to keep control of the House.

Stumbo said he will ask the Democratic majority to re-elect him speaker, the House’s No. 1 leadership position.

FK – Well we had high hopes, not that the republicrats would magically fix anything anymore than they will in the u.S. Senate. Kentuckians are a strange bunch. Someone I was campaigning with the other day repeated to me what he heard from a prospective voter: “I’m been registered democrat all my life but I always vote republican.”

Why this can’t translate into a Kentucky legislature and governor’s mansion free of commies is a mystery to me. The Republican party of Kentucky has a lot of house cleaning to do.

FK – ‘Friends‘ don’t elect trash to hire Nazis to kill you for refusing to obey their commie/authoritarian laws.
