A special election will be held in southern Kentucky next month to fill the unexpired House term of Sara Beth Gregory, who was elected to the Senate last month.

The Lexington Herald-Leader reports Gov. Steve Beshear set the election for Feb. 12 for the 52nd House District, which includes Wayne and McCreary counties and part of Pulaski County.

Gregory won a special election to serve the remainder of former Senate President David Williams' term after Williams resigned to accept a circuit judge appointment by Beshear.

The House seat left vacant by Gregory, a Monticello Republican, runs through the end of this year. Party officials will choose nominees for the seat.
