KDP Response to Harmon Statement
In response to a statement issued today by Republican candidate for Auditor Mike Harmon following the indictment and subsequent resignation of his campaign manager, Kentucky Democratic Party Chairman Patrick Hughes issued the following statement:
"If Mike Harmon's statement today reads like a candidate whose campaign is imploding, it's because that's exactly what is happening. His rambling manifesto is full of wild accusations -- but fails to answer some simple questions: what did Harmon know about the scandal, and why did he retain Benton as his top campaign official while he was facing this investigation? This statement, coupled with the scandal, only underscores that Harmon lacks both the character and judgment to serve as Kentucky's top taxpayer watchdog."
