The Kentucky Democratic Party

Democrats are united in our belief that America is a better place when everyone gets a fair shot at a good life, everyone does their fair share, and everyone plays by the same rules. Kentucky Democrats are organizing in every district, going precinct-by-precinct and door-to-door to elect leaders with the vision and values we share.

Senator Wendell Ford said, “all politics is grassroots politics.” As we heed his advice in a new era, we are implementing a 120-county strategy because every county counts. Our county parties are the backbone of the Democratic Party. Find your contact, and get involved!

Important Voter Update: October 14, 2019

Matt Bevin has spent the last four years insulting each and every Kentuckian, so it’s no surprise he is trying to hurt Kentucky families by cutting education funding, ripping people off their healthcare, and gutting their pensions. His insults are simply made worse by his actions. He is a bad governor who has hurt Kentucky families.

Important Grassroots Update: September 27, 2019

We have always expected this to be a close race and the Beshear campaign is ready to fight to the finish. We want to be transparent about how we are trying to win this race and what our current budget allows us to do. We are, of course, trying to raise more resources from our terrific supporters, which would allow us to do more work, but want to be realistic about where things stand today.

This race may come down to a few thousand voters. We will have a massive canvass operation that talks to voters at their doors. In the closing days of this campaign, the Beshear team will be knocking on doors and phone-banking to remind supporters with less consistent voting records how important it is to get out and vote. What we have found is that reminding voters that voting is public record and talking about the importance of voting is the most effective way to get them to vote. Our current budget does not allow us to communicate to these crucial voters in the mail.

Additionally, our current budget does not include valuable work like sending mail targeted to African American voters in the weeks leading up to the election about why the governor's race is important.
