KY Republican Revolution 2006

I'm hearing reports all over the state of Republican candidates for local office who are winning wide support despite Ernie Fletcher's woes.

In the last few hours I have heard very encouraging central Kentucky news from County Judge candidates John Wilson in Garrard county, Danny Godbey in Lincoln county, and Randy Bowen in Powell county. All three seek to succeed Democrat incumbents. Lincoln and Powell counties are both historically Democrat counties.

I hesitate to wonder out loud how things might be turning out with a Republican governor engaged in the local races all this year.
