At the end of the 2020 Legislative Session Sen. Ernie Harris, R-District 26, announced his retirement after 25 years. A pro-life voter in the Legislature, we wish him well. District 26 comprises Oldham County and northeastern Jefferson County.
In a special election slated for the state's re-scheduled Primary Election, KRLA has endorsed William G. Ferko, a Prospect businessman and charitable organizer.
Mr. Ferko is a private investor and director of computer/ manufacturing innovator, Sypris Solutions, Inc. He is staunchly pro-life and will "tirelessly uphold our Kentucky values" as a Republican representing the 26th Senatorial District. His campaign website soon will have more information.
He is board chairman of Dismas Charities and a member of St. Bernadette Catholic Church and the Knights of Columbus Council 13053 which is active in pro-life work. He responded to the KRLA-PAC endorsement thanking KRLA "for your work to prevent abortions and to prevent killing babies."
The Democrat opposing him is a graduate of EMERGE-Kentucky. EMERGE is a candidate-training organization for Democratic women. The EmergeAmerica.org website lists former Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards, Gloria Steinem, Donna Brazile, Patricia Schroeder (etc) on its advisory board. In a Politico article, it appears that Emerge candidates get $$$$$ from George Soros. The same article is on the Emerge website.
PLEASE BE AWARE: Since District 26 is a SPECIAL ELECTION, the PRIMARY is the ONLY TIME that you can exercise your vote for a PRO-LIFE SENATOR FOR DISTRICT 26. The election of Bill Ferko is critical to maintaining a strong voice for the vulnerable preborn during the 2021 legislative session.
