Kentucky Democratic Party funding is good news for Jim Gray

Victory-endorsed US Senatorial candidate Jim Gray is making headlines across the nation for his increasingly promising effort to unseat Senator Rand Paul in Kentucky. Polls show voters souring on Rand Paul prioritizing a presidential run over the needs of Kentuckians, and Jim’s positive message and concern for real issues is resonating with residents.
And there is more good news. In the last month, the Hillary Victory Fund transferred $793,000 to the Kentucky Democratic Party, according to a McClatchy DC report. This funding influx will help Jim’s message reach more Kentuckians, as he makes a strong case to voters about the substantive change he’ll bring to Washington.  
More from McClatchy DC:
According to Federal Election Commission filings, the Hillary Victory Fund made separate transfers of $600,000 and $193,000 to the Kentucky State Democratic Central Executive Committee in July.
Those contributions accounted for the bulk of the $913,000 the committee raised last month and made July the state party’s best single month for fundraising since November 2015, when Democrats lost the governor’s mansion.
