~ Kentucky Bill~

A Patriotic Nurse is sad to report …………………


May the Best Man Win

ELKTON —Kentucky GOP Candidate Bill Johnson today issued the following statement regarding his decision to exit the U.S. Senate race.

“Magellan Strategies completed a poll for the campaign on Tuesday evening. The results were not encouraging for a continued run. It is time to gracefully and honorably exit the race for the U.S. Senate.

“I have no regrets. Spending time with men like Bob Heft (50 Star American Flag designer) and Dr. Alan Keyes (Pro-life advocate) has enriched my life. Talking with Kentucky’s Republican congressman during the past few months reassures me that good people are fighting hard for America. I am happy to say that we have some outstanding men and women serving at the state level, many of them have given me words of encouragement. And meeting conservative men and women across the state of Kentucky has renewed my faith that America will again head back to the Constitution.

“Trey and Rand are both good men. I have decided to remain neutral for now and clear of endorsements. Regardless of who wins the primary, I offer my full support to helping that candidate become our next U.S. Senator from Kentucky.

“I will spend the next few months relaxing and enjoying time with my family. I humbly thank all my supporters and volunteers for their efforts. My goal was to be your public servant in Washington but perhaps another opportunity will emerge in the future. I look forward to your continued friendship. Please stay in touch. Best Regards, Bill”

I cannot say how it saddens me to see such a strong passionate man leave this race at this time. With that being said, I truly honor and respect his decisions. I will continue to rally behind him anytime, any where..For me it was his passion, his principles and values that led me to support him and his platform. Like Mr. Johnson, I will refrain from endorsing a candidate in this race. None of them resonates for me the way that Johnson did. Bill, I wish you the best of luck with every endeavor and I feel very blessed to have been part of such a great team.

I would like to add, what a pleasure it was to have worked with some of the most passionate patriots that I’ve had the pleasure of working with. Names are many but if you are reading this, you know who you are~ A Patriotic Nurse

  1. Erica,
    I can’t add much to what you have already said. It has been a pleasure and a privilege to work with you and the other dedicated volunteers on the campaign. I have a feeling Kentucky Politics has not seen the last of Mr.Bill Johnson.

    • Oh I tend to agree with you Geketa! Wish we could all manage to get together and share stories etc! A great pleasure indeed!

  2. I am with you. The best thing for us to remember right now is Reagan’s comment about a person who agrees with you 80% of the time being a good friend. Also, Sarah Palin reminded us, in early February at her keynote address at the Tea Party Convention in Nashville, that we were not going to find perfect candidates, bcs none of us are perfect…we must find the candidates who agree with us the most on our conservative principles. (paraphrased)

    • Yes and for those very reasons was and still is why I put my energy into Bill Johnson. He is the only man in this race whose message correlates with mine. That is why I am remaining neutral..I cannot in good faith back the other two! Appreciate your comments always!

  4. Thanks for this post. It has been a privilege and honor to get to know some of you. I had become extremely disillusioned with the whole political system, but Bill Johnson gave me hope that we just might be able to bring some integrity back to an office once reserved for men of honor and integrity. While I am deeply saddened by his departure, I continue to support his candidacy because there is no other person I believe to be worthy to restore dignity in Washington. God Bless.

    • Indeed a privlege and honor for sure! I have been fighting the fight on the national level for sometime and this was my first real time working so diligently for a state candidate but I did so because his message was heartfelt, full of passion and a strong desire to serve our country once again. I, too, will continue to support him, to do other wise would be against everything I personally stand for. Appreciate your post, your passon and your friendship! God Speed~

  6. Oh, Miss Erica! I cannot WAIT until you post a little somethin’ somethin’ on Veritas & Libertas!

    Long Live the Republic, indeed!

  7. I will write what many have said. While Bill’s decision was his to make and I respect it’s practicality, I am profoundly disappointed in the manner in which he conducted his withdrawal. Too many people were impulsively left in the lurch. We learned a lot from Scott Brown’s last minute rise in the polls and finances.
    Lessons learned….
