Will "Speaker Hurst" do any better with the Clinton campaign in KY than he did with the KY House?

Louisville Courier-Journal reporter Joe Gerth reports that Jonathan Hurst, Speaker of the House Jody Richard's (D-Bowling Green) right hand man in the House, is slated to be Hillary Clinton's Kentucky campaign director. Hurst wielded so much power in the House Caucus that he was often referred to as "Speaker Hurst." Richards is thought by many observers to take his political cues from Hurst. But the last two sessions have been a disaster in terms of administration and Democratic political strategy.

Hillary better hope Hurst does a better job for her than he has done with the House in recent years.
