What can you say as a judge candidate in Kentucky

Via this Marcia Oddi post, the Louisville paper has this article on the new rule allowing free speech for candidates for judgeships in the Commonwealth of Kentucky.

The article says:

"The new rule says judicial candidates must not 'intentionally or recklessly' make a statement that could be perceived 'by a reasonable person' as committing them to rule a certain way on an issue they could hear."

The article suggests that Kentucky conservatives are seeking to challenge even this limit on judges, to make it easier for them to ferret out the liberals.
