Andy Barr released the following statement regarding the Congressional redistricting plan that earlier today passed the Kentucky General Assembly:
"Today, Ben Chandler has turned his back on tens of thousands of his own constituents by cutting a backroom deal to get rid of them. This brazen and desperate attempt to avoid accountability for supporting Barack Obama's job killing agenda is exactly why the American people are so disillusioned with politics and career politicians. At the end of the day, the Chandler-Obama agenda of bigger government, fewer jobs and massive debt has been a disaster for all of the people of Kentucky, no matter where they live. I look forward to taking that message to the many new voters of the Sixth District, and offering a better, more hopeful alternative."
