FRANKFORT, Ky. — A political group that swayed a Kentucky congressional primary last month is beefing up its staff with former Ron Paul campaign staffers in hopes of influencing more House races this fall.
Liberty For All Political Action Committee, financed largely by millionaire college student John Ramsey, spent more than $500,000 on TV ads in Kentucky to help Republican Thomas Massie win the 4th District GOP nomination in May.
The super PAC's executive director, Preston Bates, told The Associated Press on Tuesday that Chris Kuper has signed on as political director. Kuper had served as Paul's liaison for national coalitions.
Bates said other Paul aides who have joined the PAC's staff include Jared Chicoine as senior adviser, Kate Schackai as press secretary, and Jordan Brown as senior researcher.
