Oh, and one more thing: Rep. John Yarmuth remains unopposed, though Burrel Charles Farnsley (son of former Mayor Charles Farnsley) told LEO on Monday that he plans to file. (Note: Farnsley won just over 1 percent of the vote in last year’s Democratic mayoral primary.) Awesome is known to ward off legitimate challengers, it’s just basic science.
