(AP) — A Kentucky unemployment site was temporarily closed because of an apparent lack of visitors, prompting Gov.
Matt Bevin to cancel a planned rally and a campaign rally on Friday, but the campaign and the state party were not immediately able to say when it would reopen.
Bevin canceled the rally in Louisville at noon and the campaign rally at 3 p.m.
The governor said he would not have the rally and rally cancelation because it was a matter of public safety.
A website listing the name of the website was temporarily blocked, prompting a message from a person on the site who said the site had been temporarily closed.
A spokesperson for the governor’s office told The Associated Press that the temporary closure of the site was due to a lack of visitor traffic.
Beven, a Republican, has criticized President Donald Trump for making the unemployment rate high, and some of his supporters have been calling for his resignation.
The Kentucky unemployment rate is 10.2 percent, which is the lowest in the country, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
