Current 3rd district representative republican Brent Housman didn't seek a second term.  Watkins won the race with 59 percent of the vote. Watkins is a Paducah native and has served on the Paducah city commission for six years. He says,

“I think the people of Paducah and McCracken County recognize the hard work that I have done and feel like and have the confidence that I’ll do a good job in Frankfort. So, I’m just really gratified at the kindness, support of the people, my family friends, and the people of the community.”
