Potential Kentucky Democrat U.S. Senate Candidate says, ‘Kentucky is Not a Red State’ After Trump Won it by 26 Points

Charles Booker, who is a former Democrat State Representative in Kentucky is exploring a run for the U.S. Senate in 2022 to try to unseat popular Republican Senator Rand Paul.

“Good morning. Kentucky is not a red state. It’s a disenfranchised state. An exploited state. A marginalized and ignored state. But together, I know we can change that.”

Booker seems to be looking for money and a bigger platform as he knows he will probably never win in the state of Kentucky as it is a deep-red state, and will most likely stay that way for a while. Booker is trying to grift money from donors to make people think a Democrat can win a senate seat in Kentucky. He also may be motivated by the fact that Kentucky somehow elected a Democrat Governor because they disliked the Republican running so much recently. Many still think this was a bad idea for Kentucky Republicans to abandon their party in that election for obvious reasons.

As a reminder, Trump won the state of Kentucky with 62% beating Joe Biden by 26 points. Even after Democrats spent millions of dollars to try to unseat Mitch McConnell, (R-KY) he also still won by just south of 20 points.

It seems that anytime a candidate tries to run in a state or district that is deeply partisan, they are trying to run to gain money and a bigger platform. In this case, Booker is going to be potentially doing that. Some may also call it a “Hail-Mary” run. People do this in both parties. Sometimes there are surprises, but rarely.

If Booker does run, it will be interesting to see how many points he will lose by as Kentucky is going to clearly elect a Republican to the Senate once again. Senator Rand Paul is wildly popular in the state and will cruise to a victory come 2022 in our estimation.
