    Conway is also a Democrat who opposed same-sex marriage when running for Senate in 2010. Now, as AG, he refused to appeal the court's decision.

    The word "parent" is supposed to be a VERB, people...

      and he supported numerous LGBT rights during his Senate run against Rand Paul in Kentucky's conservative climate. Did it cost him votes in Kentucky? Highly probable.

      The downside is... he just doesn't personally believe in marriage for same-sex couples. Just like Obama. Or Bill Clinton. Or any number of other Democrats. Religious indoctrination is a difficult thing to overcome.

      But, Conway never once argued to make it his way or the highway for marriage rights for LGBT couples. Never. Discrimination is anathema to Jack Conway.

      And he's been a fantastic AG. I'm just wondering if Crit will chose him for Lt Gov when she announces her run. Conway is a good Democrat and he brings good things to the table for us.
