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!

For Kentucky residents: Sign the petition and also send a free message to your State Representative on this issue! Also, send faxes here!

This "feckless" government is missing LEADERSHIP and when a man has the courage to stand up and LEAD the ACTION, he should be SUPPORTED. LEADERS ARE MIA!
