Lowell Reese of Kentucky Roll Call
Tea Party slate for governor
The climate and culture in Washington and the characters on Wall Street created a ‘condition’ for the Tea Party to sprout and grow like a plant that flourishes in one soil or climate and droops in another. It grew; it wasn’t manufactured.
Now some of the activists — in effect, leaders — of the Tea Party in Kentucky seem to think that condition also exists in Frankfort. They are putting together a gubernatorial slate to run in the governor’s race year. David Adams told Kentucky Roll Call today in an email that some Tea Party activists are “close to putting together a gubernatorial slate to ensure regular Kentuckians' voices are heard in the Commonwealth. … Details should be available soon."
