A Republican group tasked with winning state-level races across the U.S. has its sights set on Kentucky. The Republican State Leadership Committee is an independent Republican political action committee that has established itself as a major factor in state legislative races.
A Democratic super PAC that was active in last year’s governor’s race is taking part in legislative races this fall. The Kentucky Family Values super PAC was started to help Governor Steve Beshear win re-election. The group has now re-formed under new leadership to influence state House races.
