"I know the Obama people don't want Judd"

HOWARD FINEMAN: I was in Kentucky last week at the big Democratic dinner of the establishment. They don’t have a candidate to stop her. If they want to stop her from getting in or if they want to stop her from winning the Democratic nomination in the Kentucky Senate primary a year from this May, they need to coalesce around an alternative. They don’t have one right now. Most likely it is the Secretary of State, Alison Grimes.

If they can get her in, fine. The Judd supporters think that if she gets in she clears the field, we’ll see. I know the Obama people don’t want Judd. I know the Kentucky Establishment don’t want Judd, but nobody else wants to run. All the establishment Democrats want to wait for the governor’s race in 2015.
