What makes one think that Republicans in the Sixth District associated Alice Forgy Kerr with McConnell? If McConnell "selected" her and then became inactive in the race, how would the average voter have made such a connection? Would someone other than Kerr have been a stronger candidate? If so, why did McConnell "recommend" Kerr? It sounds like McConnell wanted to run a woman, and she was the choice, but the candidacy simply failed, perhaps for no reason having to do with Kerr.
As for the next candidate, good luck to him, but I doubt that KY will retire Rep. Chandler after just eight months on the job. People in KY are not know for rash political action, but they act very slowly over time.
