Pro-business candidates prevail in election

  • The Kentucky Chamber of Commerce’s independent Political Action Committee (PAC) endorsed 26 legislative candidates in the 2012 General Election. Eight candidates for Senate and 18 candidates for the House were endorsed based on their overall record voting and demonstrated positions on key business issues.  Of the 26 endorsed candidates, unofficial results indicate 24 were victorious.
