Northup Can’t Win, Her Supporters Can Whine

This guest editorial is absurd. Obviously, Anne Northup and her supporters are desperate. They are not discussing policy. They are begging Billy Harper. Their request is pathetic.

Additionally, their assertions are hyperbolic. Fletcher cannot survive a two way primary? Harper would receive a prominent place in a Northup\Hoover administration? Anne and Jeff will save our party? Ridiculous. The truth is Fletcher will not survive any primary. Anne is not a savior. A Northup\Hoover administration will never exist.

Northup supporters, please stop crying.

From Christopher Thomason:

Billy Harper is a decent, honorable man who has been a loyal Republican for many years. His skills as a businessman are second to none and his principles and integrity make him an asset to our party. However, given the current situation in the Kentucky gubernatorial primary, Mr. Harper should do the right thing for the party and for the state and drop out of this race in favor of Northup/Hoover. There is clearly no way Ernie Fletcher can survive a two-way primary between himself and Anne Northup, but with Mr. Harper in the race, he may just squeak by.

I am certain that Mr. Harper would have a very prominent place in a Northup/Hoover administration, not to mention that he would be a hero within the party for making such selfless move and withdrawing from the race. We have the opportunity with Anne Northup and Jeff Hoover to save our party and right the wrongs of the Fletcher Administration, but that opportunity may not come to pass in this three-way primary. For the sake of the future of the Republican Party and our continued successes in Kentucky, please, Mr. Harper, do the right thing and bow out.
