Will FairTax Be An Issue In KY-4?

(Update: Rep. Davis' office says he is not in favor of the FairTax.)

Last year, Congressman Geoff Davis' name was added as a co-sponsor of HR 25, The FairTax.

Three weeks later, he withdrew his name from the bill. (It turns out his name was added to the bill by the sponsor mistakenly.) Rep. Davis has taken some undeserved heat from FairTax supporters on this.

This year, former Congressman Ken Lucas, Davis' Democratic opponent this fall, is looking at the FairTax himself.

We are expecting word from both campaigns this afternoon with regard to their current positions on the FairTax. The Lucas campaign can be reached by calling (859) 331-0832. Rep. Davis' office number is (202) 225-3465.
