Mayor Jim Gray brings experience to race Sunday, Oct 16 2016 

By Kyeland Jackson —

With the presidential election fast approaching, competition closes for the U.S. senate.

Encouraging students to register and vote on Nov. 8, senate candidate Jim Gray spoke to the Cardinal about what he brings to the table for elections.

“I have both the private sector experience, a career in the private sector, and a career in the public sector. So I’ve been able to see that good business practices and principles will translate into the public sector,” Gray said.

He emphasized a government should not always be treated as a business.

Gray, Lexington’s mayor for six years, faces incumbent Rand Paul. Gray has an uphill battle with a 12 percent poll deficit according to a Runswitch PR and Harper poll in early August.

The race is important for U of L students and other Kentucky universities recovering from daunting years.

Cuts by Governor Matt Bevin were prepared to take $18 million from colleges and universities in the state. Courts ruled he must return the funds, but state funding towards higher education continues to decrease. For U of L, state funding has decreased regularly for nine years. Cuts prompted U of L to lean on its students, increasing tuition, meal plans and housing.

To allay higher education concerns, Gray plans to address the economy, cost of education and options available for students to succeed.

“We’ve got to address all the concerns related to higher education,” Gray said.

“We’ve got to grow our economy so young people can have the opportunities that I had, that we had. If we don’t grow the economy at more than a one (0r) 1.5 percent a year, then you’re not going to have the promise of a growing middle class.”

“One of the things that I think we really need to work on is the cost of education. I think it’s really a shame that students are coming out of college with mountains of debt.”

“I don’t think anyone has the simple answer, but I think we’ve got to work on it. ”

“But I think we’ve especially got to look at the way in which we’re creating the promise, or the expectation, that better jobs and opportunities are going to come from just a higher Education. I think it’s important for us to say to young people that there are other opportunities as well where you can get ahead.”

“A technical track, for example through community colleges, where this high amount of debt won’t occur.”

Gray’s example is the “Beam Project,” which he says focuses on 100,000 high-paying manufacturing jobs for youth.

Senatorial races may not be the at the forefront of students’ minds, but the election’s outcome will prove important for students and citizens alike.

Kentucky GOP: PAC Supporting Jim Gray ‘Kicking Back’ For Hotel Deal Wednesday, Oct 12 2016 

The Republican Party of Kentucky says a super PAC is inappropriately supporting Democratic Senate candidate Jim Gray because one of the organization’s leaders benefited from a city development initiative during Gray’s time as mayor of Lexington.

Kentucky Moving Forward released its first television ad criticizing Gray’s opponent, first term Sen. Rand Paul, on Tuesday. The commercial features a clip of Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump saying that Paul “shouldn’t even be on this stage” during a debate earlier this year and criticizes Paul for having a $300,000 campaign debt.

The treasurer of the organization is Steve Wilson who is also the co-founder and CEO of 21c Museum Hotels, which opened a hotel in downtown Lexington earlier this year. The company received a $6 million Housing and Urban Development loan and a $1 million loan from the city, both of which had to be approved by the Lexington City Council.

Tres Watson, spokesman for the Republican Party of Kentucky, said that Gray was getting a “well-earned back scratch” from Wilson, the hotel’s founder.

“Mayor Gray is clearly benefiting [sic] from a shady business deal stamped in government ink,” Watson said. “This crony deal is the definition of what’s wrong with this rigged system and Mayor Gray should be disqualified from holding office for his part in this kickback scheme.”

Watson also accused Gray of stalling the completion of the long-delayed CentrePointe hotel development in downtown Lexington, which he said is in “direct competition” to the 21c Hotel.

21c founders Wilson and Laura Lee Brown bought the historic First National Bank building in downtown Lexington for $3.1 million in 2012 to serve as the company’s newest installment — it already had locations in Louisville and Lexington.

Cathy Lindsey, Gray’s campaign spokeswoman, called the accusations from the Republican party “absurd.”

“The 21C project in Lexington brought life to an historic building in the heart of downtown and created hundreds of good jobs,” Lindsey said. “Mayor Gray is proud of his record of bringing good jobs to Lexington.”

The Lexington City Council approved a $1 million loan to the company later in 2012 to help it convert the building into a 90-room hotel. In 2014, the council voted to let Gray execute a $6 million loan from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development for the 21c project.

Lexington City Councilman Bill Farmer, a Republican, also criticized the state Republican Party’s accusations.

“The City Council was proud to support the 21c Hotel project that brought jobs and much needed activity to one of Lexington’s most historic properties,” Farmer said. “Mayor Gray draws support from many quarters and his record of encouraging quality job creation is clear. To say that he treated this win-win project differently is both absurd and untrue.”

Kentucky Moving Forward did not respond to requests for comment on this story.

Gray and Paul are scheduled to square off in a televised debate on October 31 on KET.

In TV Ad, Gray Attacks Paul’s Foreign Policy Record Tuesday, Oct 11 2016 

Democratic Senate candidate Jim Gray launched a TV commercial attacking Republican Sen. Rand Paul’s foreign policy record about a month before Election Day.

Gray’s ad features clips of high profile Republicans talking about Paul during his failed presidential run, which ended early this year.

In the ad, Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, Arizona Sen. John McCain, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and Fox News commentator Bill O’Reilly criticize Paul’s foreign policy record while text displays on the screen criticizing Paul of proposing to cut defense spending by 30 percent and opposing the Patriot Act.

Cathy Lindsey, Gray’s spokesperson, said the campaign has spent $325,000 to air the commercial across the state on broadcast and cable stations.

“Rand Paul is a jaw flapper who has spent six years in Washington doing two things, running his mouth and running for President (he failed at both),” said Lindsey said in a statement. “Kentuckians deserve better than a senator who is willing to weaken America’s National Security just to promote himself. Paul asks for attention while running for President, but continues to ignore Kentuckians at home.”

Paul is at the end of his first six-year term in the Senate. Gray was elected to a second term as the mayor of Lexington in 2014.

Kelsey Cooper, communications director for Paul’s campaign, said the claims in the ad were false and that Gray is a “desperate, typical politician.”

“Dr. Rand Paul stands for a strong national defense and actually proposed an increase in defense spending,” Cooper said. “He has always said that national security is the most important function of our federal government, and he will continue defending Kentucky, our nation, and our liberties.”

According to Politifact, Paul’s 2011 budget proposal would have reduced defense spending by about 23 percent compared to the non-partisan Congressional Budget Office estimates.

However, Politifact said that Paul’s budget proposal from 2013 amounted to an increase in year-over-year defense spending compared to caps set by the “sequester,” which cut non-war defense spending.

Paul does oppose the Patriot Act, which allows the federal government to conduct roving wiretaps and search private business records.

Paul rose to national prominence early in the presidential race on a platform that included reducing national spending, staying out of foreign crises and curtailing government surveillance. His more isolationist stances fell out of favor over the course of 2015 after the rise of ISIS, the ongoing civil war in Syria and the San Bernardino shootings.

Gray’s commercial is the first negative ad to come directly from the candidates this campaign. A super PAC that supports Paul has aired an ad tying Gray to Hillary Clinton over the past months.

An organization that supports Gray released an ad Tuesday criticizing Paul for having a $300,000 campaign debt.

LISTEN: Senate Candidate Jim Gray On Rural Kentucky, Rand Paul’s Record Monday, Sep 26 2016 

Kentucky’s U.S. Senate race has moved at a sluggish pace compared with the heated matchup between Republican Sen. Mitch McConnell and Kentucky’s Democratic Secretary of State, Alison Lundergan Grimes, two years ago.

Lexington Democratic mayor, Jim Gray, is trying to unseat first-term Republican Sen. Rand Paul, who also made a run for president before suspending his campaign earlier this year. The two have squared off — mostly through spokespeople and written statements — about issues including gun control, revitalizing the coal industry and finding solutions to the opioid epidemic.

The two men finally made a joint public appearance at this year’s Fancy Farm picnic. Paul attacked Gray’s record as the mayor of Lexington, homing in on a development fiasco that has left a giant construction pit in the center of the city’s downtown. Gray attacked Paul for running for president while remaining in the Senate.

I sat down with Gray to talk about the race and the Senate seat. We’ve extended the same invitation to Paul and hope to have an interview with him in the coming weeks.

Listen to my conversation with Jim Gray in the audio player above.

Gray on relating to rural Kentuckians:

“I grew up in Glasgow, in southern Kentucky. I’m a seventh-generation Kentuckian — spent half my life there. Our family’s business started there, and we’ve done projects all over Kentucky — more than 500 projects in 53 counties in Kentucky. And we’ve helped create more than 20,000 jobs; more than 20,000 people a day walk through the doors of plants built by Gray Construction, and that’s just in Kentucky.”

On Paul’s work in the Senate:

“I’m always gonna give people credit for good intentions, and I would do that. But let’s look at Senator Paul, what he’s actually done while he’s been in the Senate. He’s been focused on the White House. He was sworn in and it wasn’t but a few months before he was actually in Iowa and New Hampshire. Now in full disclosure, admittedly he was was then out stumping for his father. But clearly it transitioned very quickly to he was stumping for himself in other places.”

State House Races Will Determine Who Runs Frankfort Friday, Sep 9 2016 

Along with elections for president, U.S. Senate and Congress, Kentucky voters will decide in November the political control of the state House of Representatives, the last legislative chamber in the South controlled by Democrats.

Kentuckians have put more and more Republicans into office over the past few decades. Last year’s election brought a new crop of Republican constitutional officers to state government, including Gov. Matt Bevin, only the second Republican to hold the office in four decades.

The state also hasn’t voted for a Democratic president since 1996 or U.S. Senator since 1992.

But many Democrats have still had success on a local level. After four open House seats triggered special elections in March, Democrats stunned Republicans by winning three of the four seats.

Still, Democrats’ 95-year control of the state House is at a low watermark of 53 seats, while Republicans have 47.

State Republicans have viewed this year’s House races as a blitz opportunity. All 100 seats are up for reelection, and the GOP fielded candidates in 91 of the races. They need a net gain of four seats to take the House majority.

In all, 65 of the races are contested. Here’s a brief rundown of some of the races to watch this fall.

Races In Former Democratic Strongholds

3rd District, around Paducah: Democratic Rep. Gerald Watkins vs. Republican Joni Hogancamp

In 2014, Watkins held off Republican challenger Randy Bridges, who out-raised him by more than $20,000. This year, Republicans nominated Joni Hogancamp, co-owner of Caring People Services in Paducah.

Watkins is conservative on many social issues and said he wouldn’t be campaigning against Bevin’s proposed changes to the state’s expanded Medicaid system.

84th District, around Hazard: Democratic Rep. Fitz Steele vs. Chris Fugate

A staunch coal supporter, Steele was mentioned as a representative who might switch party affiliation to Republican after Bevin took office. CNHI reported that Steele admitted Bevin tried to encourage him to switch parties.

Fugate is a pastor and former Kentucky State Police detective.

Rematches Of Close Races

94th District, around Jackson: Democratic Rep. Cluster Howard vs. Republican Toby Herald

Herald was a state representative before losing to Howard by just 14 votes in 2014. Howard is a dean and student ombudsman at Hazard Community and Technical Colleges.

78th District, around Cynthiana: Democratic Rep. Tom McKee vs. Republican Mark Hart

McKee has held the seat since 1997, when he defeated Hart in 2014 by 969 votes. Hart is the former mayor of Falmouth.

Special Elections Redux

62nd District, around Georgetown: Democratic Rep. Chuck Tackett vs. Republican Phillip Pratt.

Tackett defeated Pratt in this year’s special election by just 253 votes. The election was triggered when former Rep. Ryan Quarles resigned to become state agriculture commissioner; Quarles defeated Tackett by a wide margin in 2014.

Pratt is the owner of a major landscaping company.

8th District, around Hopkinsville: Democratic Rep. Jeff Taylor vs. Republican Walker Thomas

Taylor won the March special election by a little more than 1,000 votes. Days before the election, President Barack Obama recorded a phone message encouraging voters in the district to support Taylor, who’s also African-American. Taylor is a retired Tennessee Valley Authority official. Thomas is a former Hopkinsville city councilman and owner of a roller skating rink.

Party Flippers:

12th District, around Providence: Republican Rep. Jim Gooch vs. Democrat Jim Townsend

Gooch switched his party affiliation from Democrat to Republican after Bevin became governor last year. As a legislator, Gooch famously proposed a bill that would have made Kentucky a “sanctuary state” from federal carbon regulations.

Townsend has been the judge-executive of Webster County since 1991.

38th District, in Louisville: Republican Rep. Denny Butler vs. Democrat McKenzie Cantrell

Butler, a former police officer, also switched to Republican after being a longtime Democrat. Cantrell, an attorney with the Equal Justice Center, defeated longtime Louisville Metro Councilman Dan Johnson in the primary. The district is heavily Democratic and voted twice for President Obama.

Open Seats:

94th District, around Pikeville: Democrat Angie Hatton vs. Republican Frank Justice

The seat is held by Democratic Rep. Leslie Combs, who was first elected in 2007 and is not seeking reelection. Justice is a former mayor of Pikeville, and Hatton is an assistant Letcher County Attorney.

23rd District, around Glasgow: Democrat Danny Basil vs. Republican Steve Riley

House Majority Whip Johnny Bell is not seeking reelection, leaving this seat open. Riley is a retired teacher and school principal. Basil is an attorney.

As Senate Races Blare Elsewhere, Kentucky’s Is Quiet Wednesday, Sep 7 2016 

Kentucky’s U.S. Senate race continues its sleepy pace past Labor Day as Democratic candidate Jim Gray fights to be competitive and the incumbent lays low, enjoying a Republican surge in the state.

Gray and Republican incumbent Rand Paul have — mostly through their spokespeople — squared off on issues such as revitalizing the coal industry, gun control and finding solutions to the opioid epidemic. But interest in the race has paled in comparison to the 2014 barnburner between Republican Sen. Mitch McConnell and Kentucky’s Democratic Secretary of State, Alison Lundergan Grimes.

Steve Voss, a political science professor at the University of Kentucky, said that’s partly due to there being so many competitive Senate races across the country.

“Both the Democrats themselves and the affiliated interest groups who often throw money into a Senate race have a really wide board on which to play the game this election,” Voss said.

Democrats are angling to take control of the Senate by unseating Republicans in Illinois, Wisconsin, Indiana, Pennsylvania and New Hampshire, drawing money and attention from groups including the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, which supported Grimes in 2014. So far, the DSCC has endorsed Gray but isn’t buying ads in Kentucky to support his campaign.

Still, at least 15 Democratic senators — including vice presidential nominee Tim Kaine — have contributed to Gray’s campaign via their political action committees, totaling more than $69,000.

As of the last report on June 30, Paul’s campaign had $2,223,624 on hand, including $609,050 in committee contributions. Gray had $1,077,308 in his campaign account, with $82,700 in committee contributions.

Though there has been a dearth of public polling on Kentucky’s Senate race this year, Paul’s incumbency and status after a high-profile presidential bid, along with Kentucky’s history of electing GOP senators, likely give him the advantage. Both the Center for Politics’ Crystal Ball and the Cook Political Report list the race as heavily favoring Paul’s reelection.

Gray has distanced himself from Democrats in debates and advertisements, billing himself as a moderate who listens to both sides of the political aisle.

“I don’t believe every Democratic idea is a good idea or every Republican idea is a bad one,” Gray says in his first commercial of the general election, released Tuesday.

Although Democrats still make up a majority of voters in Kentucky — 51 percent compared with Republicans’ 40 percent — the state is trending GOP, with Republican voter registration far outpacing that of Democrats.

The last Democrat Kentuckians sent to the Senate was Wendell Ford, who was reelected for his final term in 1992. The last time Kentuckians voted to elect a Democratic president was Bill Clinton in 1996.

Voss said it’s unlikely that Paul would be sandbagged by Donald Trump’s presence on the ballot in November, though Trump might hurt Republican candidates in more liberal-leaning states.

“It’s not likely to matter much, especially since we have a lot of those Republican-leaning voters who tend to be favoring Trump,” Voss said.

Jim Gray at Fancy Farm this year.

On the issues, this year’s race has bubbled over into a bona fide argument a handful of times.

Most recently, Gray accused Paul of joining Senate Republicans in blocking a bill that would have provided $600 million in emergency funding to fight the growing heroin epidemic in the country. Paul countered, saying he voted for a budget bill last year that included $1.5 billion for the cause, though the bill also repealed major parts of the Affordable Care Act, which guaranteed Democrats would oppose it.

Gray also criticized Paul for opposing a bill that would have banned people on the FBI terrorist watch list from legally buying guns. Paul argued that he voted for a different bill that would have enabled law enforcement to postpone gun sales to suspected terrorists for up to 72 hours.

The two candidates have not appeared in the same room at the same time so far. Gray accused Paul of dodging a joint appearance at the Kentucky Farm Bureau last month. After the event, Paul said the two would debate sometime later in the race.

Gray: Kentucky Farm Bureau Should ‘Adapt To The Times’ On Gay Marriage Thursday, Aug 25 2016 

Lexington Mayor and U.S. Senate candidate Jim Gray says the Kentucky Farm Bureau should change its policies that oppose same-sex marriage and other LGBTQ issues.

“I think the Farm Bureau needs to adjust and adapt to the times, and that means adjusting their policies,” Gray said after wading through a crowd of pro-LGBTQ protesters outside the Kentucky Farm Bureau’s annual Ham Breakfast event in Louisville on Thursday morning.

A Democrat, Gray is openly gay and running against Republcian Sen. Rand Paul in his bid for reelection.

The Kentucky Fairness Campaign, an LGBTQ advocacy organization, has demonstrated outside of the annual event for years, opposing the Farm Bureau’s stances against same-sex marriage, domestic benefits for same-sex couples and abortion.

Chris Hartman, executive director of the Fairness Campaign, said his group’s opposition to the Kentucky Farm Bureau “is not going away.”

“People’s awareness is being raised about the fact that they’re buying into discrimination when they’re buying Kentucky Farm Bureau insurance,” Hartman said.

Last year, Hartman and activists Sonja de Vries and Carla Wallace were arrested while protesting the event. The charges were eventually dropped, though the activists later filed a lawsuit against the Kentucky State Police, alleging false arrest, First Amendment free speech violation, First Amendment retaliation and malicious prosecution.

Gray said he shares the concerns of the protesters and that he attended the event “to engage those who often have different points of view than I have.”

“I’ve learned that as mayor of the city and as a public servant that we often have to engage those who have different points of view in order to find common ground and shared values,” Gray said.

During his welcome address, KFB President Mark Haney defended the organization, which he said “does not discriminate” and bases its positions on input from members.

“We will not apologize for our democratic, grassroots process, the principles of which have served our nation very well for a long time and our organization for 97 years,” Haney said.

During his speech, Gov. Matt Bevin joked that the protesters outside the event were demonstrating against ham, the ostensible centerpiece of the event.

“I know some people don’t like ham, but I don’t know if you saw some of these people outside, they’re taking it to an extreme,” Bevin said. “Somebody asked me what I thought about these protesters and I thought, well, just don’t eat the ham, it’s alright.”

No protesters were arrested this year, though Hartman said state troopers told them they had to take down a large sign prohibited by longstanding Kentucky State Fair rules.

U.S. Rep. John Yarmuth, a Democrat from Louisville, and 6th Congressional District candidate Nancy Jo Kemper also joined the protests.

Yarmuth purchased a table at the Ham Breakfast in previous years but declined to go into the event on Thursday.

“Gay marriage is legal, so why you would have a policy saying you don’t recognize it is bizarre to me,” Yarmuth said.

Paul vs. Gray Headlines This Weekend’s Fancy Farm Picnic Wednesday, Aug 3 2016 

The 136th Fancy Farm Picnic, a fundraiser for St. Jerome Catholic Church, will take place this weekend in Graves County.

The contest between Republican Sen. Rand Paul and Democratic challenger Jim Gray is the most high profile race this year and both candidates will be in attendance, as will former agriculture commissioner James Comer and Hopkinsville Army veteran Sam Gaskins. They’re running for the 1st Congressional District seat being vacated by Ed Whitfield, who is retiring and will not attend Fancy Farm this year.

Kentucky Attorney General Andy Beshear is also skipping this year’s event, but he is speaking at the Marshall County Democratic Party’s bean supper on Friday night.

“This weekend I’m dividing my time between the political events in west Kentucky and my family,” Beshear said in a statement. “I will be in west Kentucky for Friday’s events. Saturday I will attend my children’s first ever play. After the last two years running for AG, it’s important Fancy to spend the last weekend before school starts with my kids at their play.”

As of Tuesday afternoon, Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes’ invitation to speak is still pending.

All of the Republicans elected to statewide office last year will take a victory lap at Fancy Farm, led by Gov. Matt Bevin.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell will also speak this year. McConnell recently indicated a “great likelihood” he will seek a seventh term in 2020.

Kentucky state Sen. Ralph Alvarado will speak on behalf of Trump’s campaign. Alvarado, a first-term lawmaker from Clark County, previously called for Hispanic voters to support Trump at last month’s Republican National Convention.

Michael W. Wallace will speak on behalf of Libertarian presidential candidate Gary Johnson. Fancy Farm organizer Mark Wilson says an invitation to Democrat Hillary Clinton’s campaign is still pending, as of Wednesday afternoon.

Conservative columnist Scott Jennings is the emcee of this year’s event. A full list of confirmed speakers is below:

  • Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R)
  • Sen. Rand Paul (R)
  • Lexington Mayor and Senate candidate Jim Gray (D)
  • Gov. Matt Bevin (R)
  • Treasurer Allison Ball (R)

Rand Paul Pushes For Criminal Justice Reform At Louisville Stop Friday, Jun 24 2016 

Sen. Rand Paul stopped at a Louisville Goodwill on Friday to talk about ways to help people with criminal records return to the workforce.

Paul has made criminal justice reform a key initiative during his time in Washington, though the Senate hasn’t passed any major proposals.

Goodwill operates programs that help people with criminal records enter the workforce. On Friday Goodwill and KentuckianaWorks presented their “Re-Entry By Design” program, which helps people on probation or parole put together resumes, prepare for interviews and ultimately find a job.

At the event, Paul said family values-oriented Republicans should logically support legislation that helps people find work despite their criminal records.

“If I’m a Republican and I say ‘I’m for family values’ and ‘I want families to be together’ and ‘I want dads to be around,’ well, dads can’t be in prison for 20 years for a nonviolent crime they committed when they were 21 or you don’t have family values,” Paul said.

Paul voiced support for the felony expungement bill that Gov. Matt Bevin signed into law in April. The bill makes people with certain Class D felonies eligible to have the offenses cleared if they pay a $500 fee. Applicants only become eligible five years after their sentences are complete.

Paul also called for a compromise on state legislation to restore voting rights to some ex-felons. In 2014, Paul voiced support for a bill that would have automatically restored voting rights to felons once they completed their sentences. The bill failed, with House Democrats opposing a five-year waiting period Senate Republicans tacked onto the measure.

Paul said he disapproved of former Gov. Steve Beshear’s executive order that automatically granted voting rights to about 180,000 non-violent ex-felons — a move that Bevin rescinded during his first weeks in office.

“Some of us want to see it done by the legislature,” Paul said. “[Beshear] was sort of doing it transiently by executive order. If we’re going to do it, let’s fix it and change the law.”

Paul has pushed several pieces of federal criminal justice reform, including reduction of mandatory minimum sentences for drug crimes, expungement of felony records and restoration of voting rights, though the proposals haven’t garnered enough support to get a floor vote.

A Republican, Paul is running for reelection to his Senate seat against Lexington Mayor Jim Gray, a Democrat.
