Kentucky: Tell the Governor and State Lawmakers to Change Election Law, Let Rand Run!

Kentucky election law currently prohibits U.S. Senator Rand Paul from seeking Presidential Office in the coming general election -- something that he has hinted at -- as he has already committed to run for re-election as a U.S. Senator.

Kentucky election law prohibits any individual from having his name appear on the ballot more than once, except "if he is a candidate for a primary or a regular election and also a candidate to fill a vacancy in the same office required to be filled at a special election." (See: KRS 118.405.

To date, this statute has been interpreted to prohibit U.S. Senator Rand Paul from seeking Presidential Office in the coming general election - something that he has hinted at doing - as he has already committed to run for re-election as a U.S. Senator. 

Kentucky Senate Majority Leader Damon Thayer says this interpretation is wrong as Kentucky election law is unable to influence federal elections.

On March 18, the Kentucky Senate passed Thayer's bill -- this means the legislation's future is in the hands of the Kentucky House and Governor.

If enough grassroots activists mobilize, there's hope we can help turn tables in Kentucky and get this bill passed!

Take Action! Sign the petition if you believe the Kentucky Legislature and Governor should clarify election law and allow Rand Paul to run for Senate and President in 2016! Also, click here to fax the Kentucky Government!

The greatest danger to American Freedom is a government that ignores the Constitution MOST BAD Government has grown out of TOO MUCH Government The issue today is the same as it has been throughout all history, whether man shall be allowed to govern himself or be ruled by a small elite The Government that Governs best Governs least and finally: Senator John F. Kennedy On “A Well Regulated Militia”: The “security” of the nation and the right of each citizen “to keep and bear arms” our founding fathers recognized the essentially civilian nature of our economy. Although it is extremely unlikely that the fears of government tyranny which gave rise to the Second Amendment will ever be a major danger to our nation, the Amendment still remains an important declaration of our basic civilian-military relationships, in which every citizen must be ready to participate in the defense of his country. For that reason I believe the Second Amendment will always be important
