LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Kentucky Republicans hope to narrow their deficit in the state House while Democrats aim to keep a seat they've held for years as voters in a central Kentucky district prepare to elect a new state representative.

The three candidates in the 56th District are spending their last full day of campaigning Monday ahead of Tuesday's special election.

Vying for the seat are Democrat James Kay, Republican Lyen Crews and independent John-Mark Hack.

They are competing to replace Democrat Carl Rollins, who resigned in the spring to take the top job with the state student financial aid agency.

The district in the heart of bluegrass country includes Woodford County and parts of Fayette and Franklin counties.
