WASHINGTON – Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairman Reince Priebus released the following statement this evening on the Kentucky gubernatorial primary:
“I would like to congratulate David Williams and his running mate Richie Farmer on their primary victory this evening to serve on the Republican Party ticket for Kentucky’s gubernatorial race. David is a dedicated public servant whose conservative, fiscally responsible vision will move Kentucky forward and create jobs. After enduring two straight years of double-digit unemployment, it is clear that Bluegrass State families can no longer afford to remain on the trajectory Steve Beshear and Barack Obama have sent Kentucky’s economy.
“With a top-flight, conservative candidate like David Williams on the ticket, the governor’s mansion in Kentucky is a top pick-up opportunity for Republicans. This evening marks the end of a competitive and hard fought primary featuring excellent candidates. Tonight’s results speak to the continued strength of the Republican Party in Kentucky and the challenges Democrats face across the country due to their economic mismanagement.”
