Bringing sexy to the trail

Actress, University of KY grad, Kentuckians for the Commonwealth member and wild UK hoops fan (OK, we’ll forgive that last one) Ashley Judd is coming to the Ville Saturday, Nov. 1 to campaign with U.S. Rep. John Yarmuth and Democratic senatorial candidate Bruce Lunsford (Gov. Beshear and Mayor Abramson will also be on hand). It’s […]

Candidates on mountaintop removal mining

In case you missed it, Jim Bruggers at the CJ has a nice overview of the Kentucky congressional candidates’ views on mountaintop removal mining, “clean coal” technology, etc. Predictably, McConnell and Lunsford are pretty lame with their answers, as is Northup; Yarmuth, on the other hand, appears to at least understand some of the attendant […]

Yarmuth up 16

John Yarmuth, D-3rd, held a rally outside ear X-Tacy on Bardstown Road today, unveiling its new slogan — “Keep Louisville Yarmuth”.

New Yarmuth ad addresses bill failure

We tackled the “truthiness” of campaign advertising in this week’s LEO, challenging both candidates in Kentucky’s 3rd District congressional race on their half-truth and misleading messages. From LEO Weekly: “Just days after the Yarmuth ad first aired last month, the Northup campaign responded by pointing out that the state children’s health insurance legislation never took […]

Northup on offense, Yarmuth stays positive

Electricity brings back those continuous campaign ads and in the KY-3 Congressional race we see the candidates contrasting strategies. Republican Anne Northup is sticking with her aggressive strategy against Congressman John Yarmuth, a Democrat. Northup’s first television ad, titled “Results”, depicts Yarmuth’s position on offshore drilling as weak and reminds voters about America’s ongoing energy […]
