The drama of the impeachment of the nation’s president, reports indicate, simply has not captured the interest or concern of the American audience. Apparently the melodrama of daytime soap operas attracts their attention more than the antics of a corrupt president and administration actively undermining the nation’s security for personal gain at the expense of the people’s interests.
Back in 2004, Thomas Frank’s book What’s the Matter with Kansas? elevated the state as the textbook case of how the Republican party has been able to leverage a platform of conservative social values to sway the electorate to vote against its economic interests.

Republican Senator and 2016 presidential candidate Rand Paul tried to lend his popularity to Kentucky gubernatorial candidate Matt Bevin, but the allure of the self-licensed ophthalmologist has faded. He couldn't even draw a crowd larger than 50 in his home state of Kentucky.
Kentucky gubernatorial candidate Matt Bevin has tied his hopes on becoming the state's next governor to being proudly for anti-gay bigotry.
Upon Matt Bevin's primary loss, Tea Party Patriots' Jenny Beth Martin put out a Kentucky Senate press statement that refers to Democrat Alison Lundergan Grimes as "Alison Graves". They also failed to endorse Mitch McConnell.

The United Kentucky Tea Party said McConnell should drop out of the race so Matt Bevin, the Tea Party candidate, can rally the conservative base.
