Candidates In The Commonwealth?

In the past two weeks, we’ve covered visits by both Democratic Presidential candidates (1,2) and all of the former first family (1,2).All of those visits (except for one by Chelsea Clinton to Jefferson Technical and Community College) were in Indiana.But with Kentucky’s primary just two weeks behind Indiana’s, it looks like the Commonwealth might get the same star treatment from the Obama and Clinton campaigns. It’s also possible that campaign stops in border towns have been aimed at generating early interest among Kentuckians. There were quite a few Kentucky license plates in the parking lot when Senator Clinton visited the South Side Inn.Kentuckians, do campaign events in nearby Indiana towns affect your voting more than events in Pennsylvania or other non-adjacent states? Hoosiers, will you feel more included in the process during campaigning in Kentucky, or will you have tuned out after casting your ballots on the 6th?
