GOP officials see a long night ahead

November 06, 2012 | | Comments 0

While talking about the prospects for Kentucky Republicans, state party chair Steve Roberts keeps craning his neck over to look at results rolling across the bottom of the two large screen televisions in the ballroom of the Marriott Griffin Gate.

In the 6th Congressional District race between incumbent Ben Chandler and Andy Barr, Roberts says the key is counties outside of Fayette.

“I think Andy Barr’s issues play really well in those counties,” Roberts says.

Like the 2010 6th district contest, Roberts predicts “a long night,” defining long as “a couple hours.”

Like State Rep. Stan Lee, Roberts says Western Kentucky counties are the key to Republicans grabbing a majority in the State House.

As Roberts talks, a cheer goes up in the ballroom as NBC announces Mitt Romney has won Kentucky’s electoral votes.
