Do you usually vote straight-ticket Democratic?
I believe I voted straight-ticket Democratic this past two elections. In nonpartisan races, such as judgeships, I normally disregard the candidates' party affiliations since they are not running as a Democrat or as a Republican. In particular, in my last race against Rogers, a lot of people told me that they were voting "straight ticket Democratic" which was their way of telling me that they were voting for me. Because of that feeling that only those people that vote "straight ticket Democratic" would vote against Hal Rogers or Mitch McConnell, I voted straight ticket Democratic in the 2006 election and in the 2007 election. You must vote your conscience. Some people feel comfortable with all of their party's ticket, and some don't. Generally we have a Kentucky with a majority of the voters registered as Democrats. If the voters vote for their party candidates, the Republican Federal candidates will be swept out of office in Kentucky. The Democratic party is like the Kentucky state motto that appears on the Kentucky flag, "United we stand, divided we fall." I hate to quote a Republican, but when he was asked why he beat Mitt Romney (endorsed by Hal Rogers) in the Iowa Caucus after Mitt Romney had outspent him 15 to 1 there, Huckleby responded people count more than purses. A majority of the people in Kentucky are Democrats; the "Mitch" campaign fund has $11 million in the bank, so who wins?
