DNC http://wkyufm.org en Yarmuth Says Kentucky Delegates Wanted to Show Unified Support for President Obama http://wkyufm.org/post/yarmuth-says-kentucky-delegates-wanted-show-unified-support-president-obama <p>As the Democratic National Convention wraps up, Kentucky Democrats are trying to present a more unified front for President Barack Obama. In this year’s primary, 42 percent of Democrats who cast ballots voted uncommitted rather than for the president. That created a problem for delegates to the party’s national convention, since uncommitted isn’t a candidate.

Democrats hold the majority of statewide offices in Kentucky, including the governor’s office. But that’s not enough to get any of those elected officials onto the DNC stage this week.

Yarmuth is one of the few public officials in Kentucky who has supported the health care law, and he actively defends it from criticism. But he says his fellow Democrats could have done a better job explaining the legislation. Fri, 24 Aug 2012 19:26:40 +0000 18036 at http://wkyufm.org
