The Cincinnati Enquirer

FLORENCE -- Democratic congressional candidate Ken Lucas will pile members of his family and campaign team in a recreational vehicle this week and stump in all of the district's 22 counties.

Mr. Lucas' barnstorming tour begins today and will run through Friday, said campaign manager John Lapp.

Mr. Lucas is scheduled to campaign in Northern Kentucky on Thursday, Mr. Lapp said.

Mr. Lucas, the Boone County judge-executive, is running against Dr. Howard Feinberg of Russell in the May 26 primary for the seat U.S. Rep. Jim Bunning is leaving to run for the U.S. Senate.

In other developments in the Lucas campaign:

Mr. Lucas began running television advertising Monday on network stations in Ashland and will probably purchase cable television spots for the Northern Kentucky market, Mr. Lapp said. The spot shows Mr. Lucas from his days as an Air Force jet pilot, affirms his anti-abortion stance and calls for laws "that will keep Internet pornography away from our children," according to a script of the commercial.

About 50 Northern Kentucky Democratic officials have endorsed Mr. Lucas.

Among those endorsing Mr. Lucas are: Cold Spring Councilman David Guidugli, State Reps. Royce Adams of Dry Ridge and Jim Callahan of Wilder, Bellevue Councilmen Jack Meyer and Steve Guidugli, Boone County Commissioner Shirley Meihaus, Campbell County Circuit Clerk Tom Calme, Florence Mayor Evelyn Kalb. Boone County Sheriff Mike Helmig, Campbell County Sheriff John Dunn, Kenton County Judge-executive Rodney "Biz" Cain, Grant County Judge-executive Shirley Howard, Covington City Commissioner Pam Mullins, Campbell County Judge-executive Ken Paul and Commissioner Dave Otto, Kenton County Clerk Bill Aylor, Campbell County Clerk Jack Snodgrass, and Kenton County Jailer Don Younger.
