Matt Bevin Lacked an Invite?
Matt Bevin tells Pure Politics that the reason he didn't attend any of the Republics events leading up to Fancy Farm is that no one invited him.
Memo to Matt: the Friday night dinner and the Saturday morning breakfast were posted on the RPK website. (Perhaps you've heard of it? The "R" stands for Republican.) Tickets were available at the door. The dinner was so loosely structured that several speakers, stage legislators, were asked to speak only upon their arrival.
More than 400 people made it to the breakfast. Even the Lamestream Media. The point here is not just to hear the speakers but to meet the people who actually get out the vote, all over the state.
Sen, Rand Paul has said, many times, that he could not have won but for the rank and file Republicans who backed him in the general election. I don't see Bevin making it to the general in this race, but he is a young man; there could be other races. And to that end he ought to stop waiting for an engraved invitation to party events for which us common folk look to the party web site.
