(WHAS11) -- A Libertarian is planning to challenge Republican US Rep. Brett Guthrie in the general election on November 6.
Craig Astor is the former chairman of the Larue County Republican Party and plans to make his candidacy official on Monday. The 49-year-old Astor is an ordained minister from Hodgenville.
Astor's campaign manager says he thinks this will be a good year for Libertarian candidates.
Brett Guthrie was elected to Kentucky's 2nd district in 2010.
The district covers 21 different counties including 12 precincts in southern Jefferson County.
