Major Party Candidates Selected for House Special Election
The major party nominees are in place for a key special election in Central Kentucky, after Republicans finalized their selection last night. Democrats from Woodford, Franklin and Fayette counties held a nominating convention this week and unanimously picked Attorney James Kay of Versailles to run for the seat. Kay is the chair of the Woodford County Democratic Party and a legislative aide to Democratic House leadership.
If elected, Kay would need to resign from his aide position. Republicans have chosen Lyen Crews, who ran for the seat in 2010. The special election will be June 25. The seat is being left vacant by Democrat Carl Rollins, who is stepping down to work with two state education organizations.
