FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - A judge has rescheduled a court hearing in Republican lieutenant gubernatorial candidate Richie Farmer's
divorce case for next month.
Franklin County Family Court Judge Squire Williams reset the
hearing for July 12, at which time he may set a trial date.
A scheduling conflict led to the cancellation of a hearing
Rebecca Farmer filed for divorce in April, saying their marriage
is broken. She gave no reason why.
Richie Farmer, the state agriculture commissioner and a former
University of Kentucky basketball star, is the running mate of
Republican gubernatorial candidate David Williams.
After the divorce petition was filed, Richie Farmer appealed for
privacy in what he termed a "private family matter." GOP
opponents didn't make the pending divorce an issue in the May
primary election that Williams won.
