Rhoads Won't Seek Re-election
Democratic State Senator Jerry Rhoads of Madisonville says he won’t seek re-election this year.
He says his three Senate terms have been among his most rewarding experiences. But he wants to spend more time with his family, including his eight grandchildren. Rhoads is the Senate’s Democratic minority whip.
Rhoads' district includes Hopkins, Muhlenberg, Ohio and Butler counties. The seat could become a target for Republicans looking to pad their Senate majority.
