Keep it straight and between the lines

 Over 27,500 votes in Bullitt County in a non-Presidential year is pretty amazing.

What’s not so amazing is the fact that 44 percent of the voters filled in the straight ticket box.

Of those 12,119 votes, 8,678 were Republicans and 3,441 were Democrats.

The bottom line is that if you were in a countywide election, the Republican candidate started with a 5,237 vote lead.

If I happened to be a GOP candidate, I like my odds.
