McConnell promises to be Obama’s worst nightmare

If reelected this year



Carney zeroed in on Republican hopes of taking control of the state House in 2014 when McConnell will head the ticket.

“I want to thank Sen. McConnell,” Carney said, and then, looking at McConnell seated in front of the podium, he said, “I’m proud to run with you in 2014.”

That was a double reference to the discomfort of Kentucky Democrats running last year on the same ticket with Obama as well as Republicans’ hope that McConnell’s 2014 coat tails will carry them to a majority in the state House.

Stivers said, “We are the party of Lincoln and we are the true abolitionists,” talking about Republican sponsored education legislation that he said will boost the fortunes of the poor and minorities.
