FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) -- The Kentucky Court of Appeals dismissed a request Wednesday, to overturn Judge Thomas Wingate's restraining order that halted the ads. The appeals panel said the group needs to ask Wingate to reconsider.
Restoring America lawyer Dale V. Bring said in a letter Wednesday, that the group has filed updated paperwork with the Kentucky Registry of Election Finance, in hopes of getting the TV spots running again. The paperwork shows the group has spent $1.4 million on ads, but it doesn't show who contributed.
Republican gubernatorial candidate David Williams' father-in-law, Russell Springs businessman Terry Stephens, said Wednesday he's providing financial support to the group.
