On his 90th birthday Gurley L. Martin files challenge to McConnell

Add one more name to the list of challengers in the 2014 U.S. Senate GOP primary — on his 90th birthday Gurley L. Martin decided it was time to run against arguably the most powerful Republican in the country U.S. Sen. Mitch McConnell.
With his own version of politics and occasionally non-mainstream view points Martin, the widower and retiree from Owensboro, says it would be a “fluke” if he were to be elected, but he says that doesn’t mean he can’t do the job.
Martin said McConnell, who is running for a sixth-term in office, likely started out as a statesman but along the way has turned into a politician.
