"TRIED TO CALL HIS PEOPLE, HAD NO LUCK"
Republican Chuck Wooten explains to KY3 News what lead to his decision to support Democrat Jay Nixon over Republican Kenny Hulshof in the race for Governor. The former 5-term state representative from the 137th legislative district says Nixon's willingness to help him pursue veterans issues sealed the deal. Wooten says he attempted to reach out to the Hulshof campaign, but never heard back. "Tried to call his people and had no luck," Wooten says of attempted contacts with Team Hulshof.
Wooten says he believes there's a lot of Republicans crossing over to support Nixon because of how the Republican establishment got involved in the primary race. "Lots of Republicans feel that the state committee should not have gotten involved in the primary," Wooten says. "It's made lots of Sarah Steelman people mad, that they're switching over to Jay Nixon."
ALSO SAYS, Nixon can work both sides of the aisle, and believes the Attorney General has a shot at winning Greene County.
Wooten attended a campaign even with Nixon Wednesday in Springfield.
