Kentucky Democrats

The Kentucky State Democratic Executive Committee has reported that it raised nearly $58,000 in March.  That's according to paperwork filed with the Federal Election Commission last week. 

The organization has been filing monthly reports with the FEC, disclosing its fundraising and spending. The latest report, which covers a period from March 1 through March 31, shows disbursements of nearly $62,000. It also shows the organization has just less than $42,000 remaining in the bank. 

Kentucky Democrats successfully defended their control of the state House -- but they're now stranded on a political island. It appears that Republicans will take control of the Arkansas House of Representatives, leaving Kentucky as the only southern state with a Democratic-controlled House. And that will make Kentucky House Democrats a big blue target in future years. The Kentucky state House will remain in Democratic control for at least two more years, when all 100 seats in the body are back on the ballot.
