FRANKFORT — Democratic state Senate candidate Jodie Haydon reported Wednesday raising $229,050 in individual donations and $9,550 from political action committee since he was nominated on Oct. 31.

Haydon, of Bardstown, faces Republican Jimmy Higdon of Lebanon in a special election Dec. 8 to fill the 14th Senate District seat vacated by Republican Dan Kelly of Springfield. Kelly accepted an appointment by Democratic Gov. Steve Beshear to a circuit judgeship.

In a news release, Haydon said his campaign contributions have come from 408 individuals and 12 politcal action committees.

“This campaign to end the gridlock in the Kentucky Senate has attracted broad support,” Haydon said.

“My supporters understand that the results of this election will send the message to Frankfort that it is time to end business as usual. At at time when our citizens are being asked to tighten their belts, government must do the same. This change must begin in the legislature, especially in the leadership of the Senate.”

The Higdon campaign had no immediate comment.

The 14th Senate District includes Marion, Mercer, Nelson, Washington and Taylor counties.

    I’m a Democrat of the Democratic Party, and I do not agree with our Democratic Party representatives in Washington.

    Our Democratic Party has moved to the far left, and we in the center and right are extremely dissatisfied with the “Change We Can Believe In” politicians and their obsession with making our Nation more like the Europe our forefathers had left behind.

    Most Democrats already know their pleas to the Democratic Party are only being answered by repeated insult and injury. Many of our elected officials are no longer thinking of themselves as being our representatives, but instead refer to themselves as leaders in the true form of tyrants.

    Nearly everyone of our elected representatives within the Democratic Party are no longer following in the time-honored footsteps laid down by the founding fathers of our great Nation. More importantly, we as democrats see our elected representatives within the Democratic Party abandoning the principles and values as set forth within the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution of the United States.

    Furthermore, our current Democratic Party leadership is tainted by corruption, and the liberals among us are supporting far-left socialist radicals with their agendas based on implementing socialist political doctrines into laws that are non-constitutional. This is a real threat to everything we hold sacred in America, and they are gaining evermore control over our Democratic Party, our Nation, and the American people.

    To all intents and purposes, our Democratic Party is undermining and destroying our American democracy as founded in protecting individual liberty and freedom. The examples are so numerous it is nearly imposable to keep up with all of them.

    Despite this, we as Democrats can restore control of the Democratic Party back to the party members. All we need to do is cut off donations to the local, state, and national headquarters of the Democratic Party, and to make sure the donations are made directly to patriotic and honorable Democratic Party candidates that are not corrupt or Socialists.

    So please help spread the message to everyone of our fellow Democrats. Also, don’t forget to contact and request the Unions and other outside contributors to follow our lead as patriotic Americans.

    Thank you, and God Bless America.
