Hopes were high at Phil Moffett’s watch party at Patrick Oshea’s in downtown Louisville. Even though, Moffett didn’t come out on top, he still got almost 40% of the vote with 10% of the money of David William’s campaign. So, Moffett is still claiming a victory.
“I think we did wonderfully.Â Are there things we could’ve done differently? Sure, but it just doesn’t matter now.Â It’s David William’s time and we need to give him the respect of the victory,” explains Moffett.
Many questioned whether Moffett would’ve beat Williams if fellow Republican Bobbie Holsclaw wouldn’t have run.
“My grandfather used to say if “ifs” and “but” were candy and nuts, it would always be Christmas.Â You know, Bobbie had a right to be in the race and she was and it’s just part of the landscape.Â I can’t complain about that,” says Moffett.
But, one thing Moffett says he does know is that without the Tea Party’s endorsement, he wouldn’t have done so well and those supporters showed up from all over the state.
“I’m from Ballard County, that’s on the other side of Paducah.Â I’ve never come up here for anything like this before but I really believe in the policies he’s running on,” comments Moffett supporter Sandy Hart.
Moffett wouldn’t say if he’d back Williams in the November general election nor would he comment on his political future but he does have some short-term plans.
“I’m going to go home and get some sleep and then I’m going to work on losing some weight and then go back to work,” comments Moffett.
