Heather Ryan runs for US Rep KY-01; Whitfield clueless

You’ll recall my earlier diaries (story also carried at Bluegrassroots) of the Navy Vet mom who KY Senator Mitch McConnell had fired from her job on MLK day because she and her 12-year old daughter dared to ask McConnell a question about the Iraq War during a campaign fund raising stop in Paducah, KY…

That woman is Heather Ryan, our newest Netroots candidate, running for US Representative of KY-01.  Heather announced her candidacy today, and will need all the help she can get to make it happen.

Here’s Heather’s announcement:

Who is she up against?

Heather’s competition is Ed Whitfield, who has apparently missed so many votes during his time in office, the Kentucky GOP has not only forgotten how to spell his name, but they have also not provided a link to Whitfield’s re-election website.

If you want to help Heather win the KY-01 seat, please head over to Act Blue to show your support.  She’s not registered there yet, but they have a placeholder for the KY-01 democratic contender, and all dollars sent in will get to Heather.

Run, Heather, run!

    We might get picked up at Diary Rescue today at Kos. One of the regular editors looks out for my posts on occasion, and commented last night that they were glad to see us following up on Heather’s story. You guys need to get Heather registered at Act Blue and get her a campaign website up ASAP. How can I help?
