LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Republican attorney general candidate Todd P'Pool has picked up another endorsement from a high-profile national Republican.
Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani told a Republican gathering in Louisville on Wednesday that the Kentucky attorney general's race carries national importance. Giuliani said that's because P'Pool, if elected, would add Kentucky to the list of states challenging President Barack Obama's federal health care law.
Democratic Attorney General Jack Conway has refused to join the
legal challenge. Conway has tried to deflect P'Pool's attacks on the issue by saying he is focused on Kentucky-specific issues such as prescription pill abuse and Medicaid fraud.
Giuliani told the GOP rally that the health care law is a drag on the national economy.
