A Republican lawmaker says he won't sponsor another bill seeking to change the
ballot law barring candidates from appearing for more than one office in the
same election. Kentucky
Senate Majority Leader Damon Thayer sponsored a bill during the last legislative session aimed at ensuring U.S. Sen. Rand Paul can appear twice on
ballot if he runs for president. Paul has already announced that he will seek
another Senate term in 2016. Kentucky
Thayer said Paul told him not to bother with the legislation after Democrats held onto the House in last month's election.
Paul adviser Doug Stafford says Paul is weighing his options.
Some possibilities include a court challenge, asking the state GOP to change its rules and trying to move the primary date.
