Senate President Trumps Governor

Internal polling shows Rep. Brandon Smith, a Republican, winning Lieutenant Governor Daniel Mongiardo's old Senate seat on Tuesday, February 5.

This will make Senate President David Williams more powerful than Governor Steve Beshear.

Williams should use his new power to push for government transparency, less welfare for drug abusers, and repeal of bad business taxes.

Republicans in power continue to shirk their fiscally responsible, better government mandates, though. Now is the time to reverse that trend.
