KY GOP Continues to Attack Republican Candidates Who Sign Libertarian Petition

We previously reported that the Kentucky GOP Chairman had requested Republican candidate for Governor Phil Moffett remove his name from the petition for Libertarian Ken Moellman, running for Treasurer. However, it now appears Moffett was not the only Republican candidate involved in this controversy.

Republican John T. Kemper III has asked that his name be removed from a campaign petition for a Libertarian candidate.

Kemper, a Lexington businessman running for state auditor, had irked Republican Party officials by signing the petition on behalf of Libertarian treasurer candidate Ken Moellman.

Republican Party Chairman Steve Robertson called for Kemper to have his signature removed. Kemper obliged. Moellman said Wednesday Kemper’s name is no longer on the list. Kemper will face state Rep. Addia Wuchner of Burlington in the May 17 GOP primary for state auditor.

Moffett also faces a contested primary and is a considered an underdog to Republican Senate President David Williams in his bid for the Republican nomination.

Several operatives who worked with the Rand Paul campaign are working with Moffett, including Trevor Lyman (of moneybomb fame) and David Adams.
