Rep. Brett Guthrie gained one more opponent on Tuesday when Criag Astor filed his paperwork to take on the incumbent lawmaker in the U.S. House District 2 general election in November.

Astor, who is a former LaRue County Republican Chairperson and current youth minister decided to run due to, “debt and spending, the economy, and our misguided foreign policy…” and “…to preserve the American Dream,” according to his campaign website.

Craig Astor joins the field as a Libertarian candidate against Republican Incumbent Rep. Brett Guthrie and Democratic challenger David Lynn Williams.

August 14th is the filing deadline for this seat.
