I have been saying it for quite a while and I will continue to say it- Billy Long is the man to beat for the GOP nomination, and unless things change drastically in the next few months, it is going to narrow down to Long and one chief opponent, and barring any unforeseen circumstances, that competitor will most likely be Goodman. Though Nodler is second place right now for money on hand, Nodler has already received primary and general election maximum contributions from most of his major supporters.
The fundraising is broken down by Dave Catanese at the KY3 Political Notebook:
Billy Long now has more cash on hand than his three top challengers COMBINED.
Long has $405,162, compared to $144,042 for Nodler, $137,544 for Goodman, and $11,144 for Greene County Prosecuting Attorney Darrell Moore.
