Barr ducking debate

So Garland (Andy) Barr has decided not to appear at the scheduled debate with challenger Nancy Jo Kemper sponsored by the League of Women Voters. How can a guy with 20 times as much money in his campaign chest be so a afraid of a little old lady like Kemper, a Christian pastor.

I suspect it’s because he just wants to run out the clock. He’s so far ahead in campaign funds because he works for the good folks of Kentucky only part-time. The rest of his schedule is crammed with giant New York bank executives and hedge-fund managers. He wants no one to have a chance to bring up that subject, so he is going to hide in a closet somewhere. Barr is not our friend. Kemper will be.
