Kendall Ainsworth injured in “minor” skeet shooting accident

State Rep. Will Ainsworth (R – Guntersville), the Republican nominee for lieutenant governor, says his wife was injured in a skeet shooting accident Tuesday afternoon.

He released as statement saying “while skeet shooting with our family on Tuesday evening, my wife, Kendall, was involved in a minor accident and suffered an injury that required staples.

“Through God’s grace and the intercessory prayers of thousands of family members, friends, and supporters, the emergency room doctors who attended to her injury predict a full recovery, and she was released shortly after receiving treatment.”

She was released from a Huntsville hospital after being treated.

Ainsworth says he will step away from the campaign trail “for a fey days” as his wife heals.

Ainsworth faces Democratic challenger, Minister Will Boyd in the race for lieutenant governor. The election is Tuesday, Nov. 6.
