All of the Kentucky State Senate candidates in competitive races (besides Jack Ditty) have now filed their campaign finance numbers with KREF. The updated totals for these races are here.
Some numbers of note:
In the 2nd, Democrat Rex Smith is absolutely dominating Independent incumbent Bob Leeper in fundraising, spending a whopping $363,000 since the primary, to Leeper’s $23,000. Leeper still has $71k on hand, but this seat could definitely flip if Smith is spending that money wisely.
In the 10th district, Parrett is dominating Tori in the fundraising game. Ditto with the 2nd.
In the 12th Don Blevins rebounded from an extremely slow start, to surpass Alice Forgy Kerr. This, along with the cn|2 poll that showed Blevins in the lead, is good news for him.
In the 28th, Palmer is getting absolutely drubbed by Alvarado, as he’s spent a measly $3.6k after the primary with only $3.4k on hand. Alvarado is sitting on over $60k on hand. If the numbers are any indication, this one could flip to the Republicans.
After careful thought and speaking to many voters from the 7th District of Virgina, it is clear that our state is broken in many ways, and it desperately needs a new, creative, and energetic voice that is willing to make tough decisions and fight voraciously for every citizen.
Hearing this message, I have decided to run for State Representative, representing District Seven. I hope to earn your vote over the next few months, and hope you’ll get involved in my campaign. It would be my honor to serve as your State Representative and bring new leadership to our capital.
This campaign is all about an effective and constructive dialogue with citizens in this district. If you have any questions, ideas, or feedback, please do not hesitate to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org . I would love to hear from you.
Well, I’m not sure how the people of the 7th District of Virginia will feel about this, but for those of you living in the 12th State Senate District of Kentucky, I’m pretty sure Don Blevins wants your vote.
