Kentucky republicans stump for last minute support, message
PADUCAH - Dubbed the "12 in 12" campaign, Kentucky Republican House Leader Jeff Hoover wants to change the Democratic tide in the state house.
He's counting on Jason Crockett to get the job done. Hoover began his 24 hour blitz in Paducah, joining Crockett at Kirchoff's. For 91 years, democrats have controlled the house, Crockett says their time is up.
"Those individuals have had a chance to address the issues and that we have and it's time to move forward and actually address the issues and I think the republican party under Jeff Hoover will have a better opportunity to do that," Crockett said.
It's the reason Richard Heath wants to go to Frankfort. For 25 years, he's been a business owner in Mayfield. With your vote, Heath said you will get a man who knows how to bring jobs to the Commonwealth.
"We've lost General Tire. We lost Inger-Saul Rand. We are seeing our industries slip away and we need employment here," Heath said.
Speaking to a crowd in Murray's Sirloin Stockade, Kenny Imes promises to bring new perspectives to what he calls old ideas. "Change in and of itself may or may not be worth anything. It depends on what change you are talking about and I'm not saying we necessarily need to revert back to the past in a lot of areas, but we've got to get back to fundamental change," Imes said.
Getting out the vote by taking to the streets and asking voters to choose the best candidate and for these three, they are hoping it's them.
