Kentucky Democratic Party Responds to Election Results

FRANKFORT, Ky. (Nov. 8, 2016) – The Kentucky Democratic Party released the following statement in response to tonight’s election results:

“First, I applaud the work of all our candidates, who faced an intense barrage of negative advertising from out-of-state millionaires contributing large sums of cash against them,” said Rep. Sannie Overly, chair of the Kentucky Democratic Party. “It was extremely difficult for any Kentucky Democrat to overcome the Trump tide at the top of the ticket. No matter what, Democrats will continue to fight for Kentucky families; specifically education, health care and jobs.”


The Kentucky Democratic Party is comprised of more than 1.68 million registered Democrats who support issues that enhance the fair treatment of all Kentuckians. Visit for more information.
