FRANKFORT, KY — The Kentucky Chamber Political Action Committee (PAC) announced Tuesday endorsements of several candidates involved in primaries which will take place on Tuesday, May 22nd.
State House and Senate race candidates who submitted answers to the Kentucky Chamber PAC’s 2018 Legislative Candidate Survey and face a contested primary were considered for endorsement.
Candidates selected by the Chamber PAC for endorsement have demonstrated their support for job growth and economic development, which will lead to a higher quality of life for the citizens of their districts and the Commonwealth.
Endorsements are based on the candidate’s understanding of business issues, past voting records, and answers to the Kentucky Chamber PAC’s 2018 Legislative Candidate Survey.
The following candidates have received the endorsement of the Kentucky Chamber PAC for the 2018 Primary:
• S-26 Senator Ernie Harris (Prospect)
• S-36 Senator Julie Raque Adams (Louisville)
• H-4 Representative Lynn Bechler (Marion)
• H-73 Representative Donna Mayfield (Winchester)
• H-19 Representative Michael Meredith (Brownsville)
• H-71 House Majority Leader Jonathan Shell (Lancaster)
Only candidates who submitted answers to the Chamber PAC’s survey were considered for endorsement. The Kentucky Chamber PAC does not endorse in districts where there is no opposition to the candidate in the primary race.
The Kentucky Chamber PAC will announce endorsements for the 2018 general election in late summer. The Kentucky Chamber PAC is the independent political arm of the Kentucky Chamber of Commerce, the largest broad-based business organization in Kentucky.
