Congressman Geoff Davis

U.S. Senator Rand Paul, R-Ky., is contemplating an endorsement in Kentucky’s Fourth Congressional District primary race after two high-profiled Republicans made their recommendations public.

According to the Associated Press, Paul is itching to give a nod to Lewis County Judge-Executive Thomas Massie, who is considered the Tea Party favorite. Paul is reportedly upset that incumbent U.S. Rep. Geoff Davis, R-Ky., and former U.S. Sen. Jim Bunning have endorsed state Rep. Alecia Webb-Edgington for the seat.

From AP:

“Sen. Paul had decided to stay neutral in the primary in order to keep the playing field level for all the candidates,” Stafford said. “But with others seeking to influence the race, Sen. Paul is now reconsidering his decision, and he’ll be closely watching the race and how other people participate in it.”
