FRANKFORT — Take Back Kentucky on Tuesday endorsed Republican gubernatorial candidate Phil Moffett — sort of.
Norm Davis, a member of the private property rights group, kicked off a press conference in the state Capitol by praising the conservative credentials of "Phil Harmon." Unlike some politicians, "Mr. Harmon" takes the time to read materials and educate himself on important issues, Davis said.
"We need Phil Harmon," Davis told a crowd of several dozen people. "I can't think of anything we don't agree on."
David Adams, Moffett's campaign manager, finally approached Davis at the lectern and whispered in his ear.
Never miss a local story.
"Oh, I'm sorry. Moffett!" Davis corrected himself. "He has a running mate named Harmon."
State Rep. Mike Harmon, R-Danville, is Moffett's running mate.
Moffett, a Louisville businessman, thanked Davis for the endorsement and called it "a big boost forward."
