Parties Nominate Candidates for David Williams' Senate Seat

By Associated Press | 

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) -- Democrats and Republicans have nominated candidates to run for an open Senate seat in southern Kentucky.

The Lexington Herald-Leader reports officials from each political party had separate meetings on Thursday, and approved the nominations of Republican state Rep. Sara Beth Gregory of Monticello and Democrat Bill Conn, a teacher in Williamsburg who is making his first run for public office.

The two are vying for a seat vacated by Senate President David Williams, who was appointed as a circuit judge by Gov. Steve Beshear. The Senate district includes Clinton, Cumberland, McCreary, Monroe, Wayne and Whitley counties.

A special election is set for Dec. 18.
