Heiner Has Edge at Jeff Co. Lincoln Day Dinner
Last night all four candidates for the Republican nomination for governor made their "closing arguments" at the Jefferson County Republican Party's Lincoln Day Dinner.
Each of these candidates gave good speeches. Based on audience reaction, it appears that Heiner had the edge among this crowd, followed by Comer.
Bevin is a much more polished speaker this time around. However, his refusal to unequivocally endorse Sen. McConnell caused many to react to his remarks with stony silence.
Will T. Scott went last. He proved as colorful expected. He coupled a great sense of humor with substance. It's unfortunate he doesn't have the resources to be more than a spoiler in this campaign. Frankly, I don't understand what he is doing. He is not going to win. Not gonna happen. He's just creating a situation that subjects the party to the risk of nominating a candidate who is so badly damaged (Comer) or unpredictable (Bevin) as to ensure that we do not win the general election.
