Frankfort, Kentucky - Republican Rand Paul doesn't want his chief opponent in Kentucky's U.S. Senate race to oversee the vote count in the May primary election.
Paul is running against the man who oversees elections in Kentucky, Secretary of State Trey Grayson.
In a letter sent to Grayson's Capitol office, Paul asked Grayson to recuse himself from overseeing the Senate election.
Grayson spokesman Les Fugate called the request absurd and blatantly self-serving. Fugate said Grayson won't recuse.
National Association of Secretaries of State spokeswoman Kay Stimson said the issue crops up from time to time in 30 states where secretaries of state oversee elections.
