Simon Skips Endorsing Candidates in GOP Governor's Race

Conservative activist Frank Simon released a list of candidates his organization is endorsing in the upcoming primary election, but it noticeably skips giving a nod to any of the three GOP gubernatorial candidates.The voter guide provided by the Freedom Heritage Forum does support candidates in other statewide races, such as secretary of state  Republican candidate Bill Johnson.However, the usually voluble Simon gives no advice to voters about the candidates at the top of the GOP ticket. Instead, he offers vague praise for state Senate President David Williams, Jefferson County Clerk Bobbie Holsclaw and Louisville businessman Phil Moffett.From B&P:Here are the footnotes for the GOP gubernatorial candidates:

"Holsclaw is an outstanding public servant and has done a great job as Jefferson County Clerk."

"Moffett, a businessman, has won numerous TeaParty polls across KY. He supports charter schools and supports replacing KY's taxes on income and profits with a consumption tax. He is pro-life."

"Williams has done a great job as president of the Kentucky Senate by blocking numerous tax increases and blocking increasing state debt that were promoted by the Democrat party. He is also pro-life and blocked expanded gambling."

What gives?
