A penny for your thoughts



With local turnout higher than many predicted, McCreary County voters participating in Kentucky’s historic first-time caucus were enthusiastic about voting in this year’s presidential election.  However, in speaking with registered Republican voters, reviews of the GOP Republican presidential caucus process were mixed.  While some enjoyed the more informal atmosphere and centralized location of the McCreary County caucus, others felt the state-wide six hour window for voting (10:00 am-4:00 pm) was too short.  Believing an earlier primary election gives Kentucky voters more clout in determining the eventual Republican presidential nominee, most local voters were pleased the Republican caucus was held in early March.  At the end of the day, GOP presidential candidate Donald J. Trump carried McCreary County and Kentucky, followed by Cruz, Rubio, and Kasich.
