Frankfort,KY – The man elected Chairman of the Kentucky Democratic Party less than five months ago may have to fight to keep the job at the Democratic Party's state convention, which will be held June 19th. Bill Garmer says he's been the object of a telephone survey of convention delegates. The party's executive director, Eddie Jacobs, says one of the questions being posed is whether the delegates would prefer Garmer or the man he defeated for the Chairmanship in January.
Former State Representative Jerry Lundergan of Lexington is the man Garmer defeated for the post. The State Convention would not include an outright election of a Chairman. Rather, the Democratic party's rules require a vote to ratify the Chairman's election, which was by an executive order.
