FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - Republican congressional candidate Gary Moore is taking a page from U.S. Sen. Rand Paul's playbook by scheduling an Internet fundraiser intended to raise quick cash for his primary campaign.
Paul helped to fund his successful 2010 race by encouraging online contributions through fundraisers he called "money bombs."
Moore's first attempt at a money bomb in the 4th District race is set for Thursday, just days after a Monday evening traditional fundraiser that his campaign said netted more than $100,000.
Moore, the Boone County judge-executive, is among seven GOP candidates seeking to replace retiring U.S. Rep. Geoff Davis. The others are state Rep. Alecia Webb-Edgington, Lewis County Judge-Executive Thomas Massie, Crestwood teacher Brian Oerther, Fort Mitchell business consultant Tom Wurtz, Sparta lawyer Marc Carey and Crestwood building contractor Walter Christian Schumm.
