Northup Visits Bowling Green
A Republican gubernatorial candidate said the party needs to replace Governor Ernie Fletcher if they want to hold on to the office.
Anne Northup filed candidacy papers on Wednesday, Jan. 17, 2007, and spent the past two days traveling the state to meet with supporters. Traveling with Northup is her running mate, Jeff Hoover. Hoover is a Russell Springs native and the current minority leader of the house.
On Jan. 19, 2007, Northup and Hoover stopped at the airport in Bowling Green, Ky., where they said they will focus their campaign on education, jobs, economic development and moving the state forward. They said in order to do this Fletcher must not be re-elected.
Paducah businessman Billy Harper has also filed to run on the Republican ticket.
