Kentucky Fried Victory

Here are the results of the Kentucky 6th congressional district's special election:

US Congress - 6th - Districtwide (98 % of precincts reporting)

candidate votes % votes
Kerr-R 65,721 43.6
Chandler-D 82,419 54.6
Gailey-L 2,769 1.8

Not only was the Republican candidate crushed, but even more importantly, they were crushed in a Southern state and in a Republican district. Not only that, but Kerr actually declined George W. Bush's offer to help because she was afraid it would hurt her. The Democrats might not need a non-southern strategy after all.
