Hopkinsville League of Women Voters host a candidate forum for the Kentucky State House District 8 race Monday night in Hopkinsville. 

Democratic Incumbent Jeff Taylor and Republican challenger Walker Thomas debate at 7 at the Hopkinsville Municipal Center Council Chambers. Taylor defeated Thomas in a special election earlier this year prompted by the resignation of Democratic Representative John Tilley.

Both parties have their sights on the Democrat-led Kentucky House, which could flip to a Republican majority in November.

The 8th District covers portions of Christian and Trigg Counties including Hopkinsville.
