Biden Wants Conway To Embrace Obama Record
In his announcement today that he won’t seek the Presidency, Vice President Joe Biden strongly stated that Democrat candidates across the country should run on the Obama record, defend the Obama record, and protect the Obama record. Jack Conway has been consistent in supporting and protecting President Obama’s liberal record in Kentucky, but now that he’s running for governor, Conway can’t run away from it fast enough in an attempt to mislead voters. Jack Conway should immediately answer if he agrees with Vice President Biden – the second highest ranking elected official in his party – or explain why the Vice President is wrong.
As of now, Conway has tried to run from that record, citing his opposition to the Environmental Protection Agency, despite previously being supported by anti-coal activists. On other issues, Conway unabashedly praises Obama’s agenda through his support of Obamacare, which had he been a Senator, would have been “proud” to vote for. Now he can’t run from Obama’s agenda, with the Vice President encouraging Democrats to run on the Obama record.
It would appear that with Biden out, Conway will support Hillary Clinton. At an Alison Lundergan Grimes event, Conway introduced Clinton as “the next president of the United States.” However, this could be problmeatic. Chuck Todd of NBC’s Meet the Press recently opined that Hillary’s e-mail scandal will effect the Kentucky gubernatorial race, and it looks like he was probably right.
It would appear that with Biden out, Conway will be forced to support Hillary Clinton – another national Democrat Conway has been running from. At a rally for Allison Lundergan Grimes last year, Conway introduced Clinton as “the next president of the United States.” However, after Chuck Todd of NBC’s Meet the Press opined that Clinton’s e-mail scandal could be a drag on Conway, he started dodging questions on the 2016 presidential race.
It is clear that Jack Conway will continue to push the Obama-Clinton agenda on Kentucky.
