Kentucky GOP Lawyer Explores Bid Against Rep. Chandler

Republican lawyer Andy Barr is initiating a likely 2010 campaign in Kentucky against Democratic Rep. Ben Chandler.

The Kentucky political blog Page One said Wednesday that Barr has organized an “exploratory” committee to run in the state’s 6th District, an area of central Kentucky that Chandler has represented for nearly six years. Barr also has a campaign Web site.

Barr said that he was “taking the initial steps necessary to travel the District, talk with potential supporters, and raise the resources necessary to launch a successful campaign.”
