Pendleton Reacts To Hendricks Endorsement

Hopkinsville Mayoral candidate Joey Pendleton is reacting to a recent report that Mayor Dan Kemp is endorsing one of his opponents. The Kentucky New Era is reporting that Mayor Kemp admitted to endorsing Republican Mayoral candidate Carter Hendricks, after a Hendricks for Mayor bumper sticker was recently spotted on the Mayor's private vehicle. Pendleton told the News Edge that he thinks the endorsement will help get his own message across.

Pendleton added it is obvious to him that Hopkinsville needs to take a different direction.

Pendleton is facing Willie Kendrick in the May Primary Election, while Carter Hendricks will face off against Jason McCraw. The winners of the Democrat and Republican primaries will be involved with a three-way Mayors race in the November General Election, if potential candidate Walter Shamble follows through with his plan to file as an independent.
