LEITCHFIELD, KY (May 11, 2023) - Jacob Clark has been a firebrand favorite for many in the liberty wing of the Republican Party in Kentucky for a few years now. He filed to run for Governor in January, and has climbed in the polls ever since.
His dedication to the founding principles of liberty and the constitution is said to be unmatched by any of the other candidates. Perhaps this is why he is now leading the other 11 candidates in a polling app from "ActiVote", which has allowed users to participate in polls and ratings for years now. In fact, in the ActiVote polling app, Jacob Clark is even beating Incumbent Andy Beshear.
It is a mystery why so many news outlets refuse to cover Jacob Clark’s incredible gains. It seems that this born and raised in Kentucky family man who pushed so hard to have Beshear impeached in 2020 and 2021 should have been covered in the news when he filed to run against him. Instead, Clark has reported many Republican County parties have voted to disallow him from speaking at their events.
Jacob Clark speculates that his exclusion is based on his loud opposition to U.S. Senator Mitch McConnell for years now. He says that much of the Republican Party efforts lately have been mostly to protect McConnell’s reputation and influence, and not focused on upholding the constitution and protecting the rights given to us by our Creator.
He cites the inaction of many McConnell loyalists like Attorney General Daniel Cameron in March and April of 2020 when Beshear closed churches, but kept abortion clinics and strip clubs open.
Craft and Quarles bragged that Beshear made good moves and did a “fine job”, while Mayor Keck even went so far as to write an article in the Courier Journal telling his city to wear masks to earn back their rights.
It would seem that the Republican Party officials want a moderate candidate who is willing to bend on principles of freedom, and they will block and censor a candidate who refuses to sell out these precious rights which are a gift from God.
We will continue to watch the "supposedly underdog" candidate Jacob Clark as this battle plays out.
