Hubbard Loses State Senate Race

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) -- Former congressman Carroll Hubbard has failed in his latest bid for a political comeback, losing a Kentucky Senate race.

Hubbard lost to Trigg County Judge-Executive Stan Humphries in their western Kentucky district in Tuesday's election.

Hubbard, a Mayfield Democrat, represented Kentucky in Congress for 18 years. He lost his 1992 re-election bid after being caught up in the House banking scandal. He pleaded guilty to campaign finance violations and went to prison in 1995.

Hubbard lost his run for the same state Senate seat four years ago to GOP Sen. Ken Winters. Winters did not seek another term this year.

Meanwhile, former state Sen. Albert Robinson is headed back to the General Assembly.

Robinson defeated Democratic businesswoman Amie Hacker in an eastern Kentucky district. Robinson succeeds Republican Tom Jensen, who headed the Senate Judiciary Committee.
