FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) — Democrat Reggie Thomas and Republican Michael Johnson have filed candidacy papers to run for an open state Senate seat in Lexington.
Thomas, a lawyer, and Johnson, a minister, won't be the only candidates in the running for the seat previously held by Democrat Kathy Stein, who resigned to accept a judicial appointment. Richard Moloney, a former member of the Lexington-Fayette Urban County Council, is running as an independent.
Gov. Steve Beshear scheduled the election for Dec. 10.
Also that day, Republican Suzanne Miles and Democrat Kim Humphrey will square off for a western Kentucky House seat vacated by former Rep. John Arnold, who resigned after being accused of sexual harassment.
