FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) — State Rep. Dwight Butler has announced he won't seek re-election next year.

Butler, the Harned Republican who has been in the Legislature for 19 years, serves Breckinridge, Bullitt, Daviess, Hancock and Hardin counties.

A respected auctioneer and real estate agent in western Kentucky, Butler has never lost an election. He has served in the Legislature since 1995. In that time, he faced political challengers only twice.

Butler said it has been an honor to serve in the Legislature but that he now needs to devote more time to his family and his business. He will stay in the position through next year, at which time he will have served 20 years.
