PARIS – Saturday's rainout of President Donald Trump's visit to a World War I cemetery is drawing catcalls from critics, including Winston Churchill's grandson.


Member, Kentucky Democratic Party State Central Executive Committee

Democrats need to understand that our governing systems, state and federal, really are not democracies but rather are democratic republics – and plan accordingly. 

It is not enough to have a simple majority of the voting public on your side. You also have to have a majority of the land mass of a governing unit (nation or state) on your side. 

This obviously applies to Kentucky. Democrats  are winning in the cities and losing in the rural areas.


As Democrats gained power nationally Tuesday, they continued to fall short in Kentucky, doing little to improve their future prospects here, and by one measure hitting a historic low. But now some hope their most prominent loser will lead them to a turnaround.

This election didn’t end the way either of us hoped it would, but I want you to know this:

I am so proud of the campaign you and I ran together.

We did our best to focus on substance and talked about how to address our nation’s problems and challenges. We built a campaign centered on talking to all people in this district—not just the folks who vote for Democrats. And we built it the right way, with a whole bunch of supporters pitching in what you could, when you could.
