A message from Larry Forgy
My name is Larry Forgy and I am a lifelong Kentuckian. I have been involved in Kentucky’s Republican Party for decades. I ran for Governor of Kentucky on the Republican ticket in 1995, and I served as the Kentucky Chairman for both of Ronald Reagan’s successful presidential elections.
I used to be a proud supporter of Senator Mitch McConnell. However, in recent years, I have become disappointed in the senator’s voting record. His current record is in stark contrast to the constitutional principles upon which he was elected, and for which I originally supported him.
That’s why, in the upcoming primary on May 20th, I am supporting Matt Bevin for U.S. Senate, and I am writing to urge you to support him also.
It is time to retire Mitch McConnell.
I can no longer be silent. I must enlighten the people of Kentucky to Senator McConnell’s unconstitutional voting record. Here are some votes which show just how far off track Senator McConnell has gone:
GUN CONTROL: Senator McConnell says one thing on the Second Amendment in Kentucky, and does something completely different in Washington. He voted for the 1991 Crime Bill (S. 1241) sponsored by Senator Joe Biden. This bill included a national waiting period for handgun purchases as well as a ban on semi-automatic ﬁrearms. In 1998, McConnell voted for Senator Barbara Boxerʼs Trigger Lock Amendment which required the purchase of a trigger lock with the sale of each handgun.
BAILOUTS: There are few bigger champions of the bailout than Mitch McConnell. McConnell joined Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid in voting for
the so-called “Troubled Asset Relief Program” on October 1, 2008. Senator Jim Bunning (R-KY) voted “Nay” on the same bill. McConnell was a champion of the TARP legislation, and referred to the passage of this massive taxpayer waste as “the Senate at its finest.”
OBAMACARE: Senator McConnell likes to say he opposes Obamacare, but actions speak louder than words. He voted for cloture, effectively
funding Obamacare on March 13th, 2013, and pressured other Republican senators to do the same. Because of Senator McConnell’s “leadership”, twenty Republicans voted for this bill. Senator Rand Paul voted “Nay” to this funding. Furthermore, McConnell worked to undermine efforts to defund Obamacare, cutting off Ted Cruz at the knees. He voted against Senators Cruz, Lee, Paul and others as they endeavored to protect the American people from this offensive legislation. Even worse – McConnell has received massive campaign contributions from United Healthcare, the lobby group that employs his former Chief of Staff, and advocates for Obamacare’s implementation.
EDUCATION: On June 14th, 2001, McConnell voted “Yea” for “No Child Left Behind”. This law demoralizes our teachers and our students. Our young people are taught memorization and mindless obedience instead of critical thinking and open-mindedness. Our teachers are reprimanded for teaching “outside the box”, and tailoring their assignments to meet the needs of the individuals in their classes.
Matt Bevin has proven that he can deliver what “We the People” need to ensure our children’s future. He is a husband and father of nine children. He has proven himself as a successful and ethical businessman, a military ofﬁcer, and a leader in his community.
His actions, not just his words, prove that he would be a good investment for the people of the Commonwealth of Kentucky. I ask you to join me in supporting Matt Bevin, the true conservative in this race for the Republican nomination. He can and will deliver.
