GOP Takes KY House

Frankfort, KY – For the first time since 1921, the GOP has taken control of the House of representatives in Kentucky. 

From the Courier Journal

The Republican Party took over the last Democratic bastion in the south Tuesday, winning control of the Kentucky House of Representatives, and winning it by a wide margin.

Among Democrats to fall under the Republican onslaught was House Speaker Greg Stumbo, who for more than 30 years has been a Democratic power in Frankfort. Stumbo was defeated in his bid for re-election to the House’s 95th District Tuesday by Republican challenger Larry Brown.

Stumbo appeared to be swept up in a powerful pro-Republican trend that also resulted in big GOP victories in several other Eastern Kentucky House races – a trend that made certain the Republican Party will take control of the Kentucky House for the first time in nearly 100 years when the General Assembly convenes in January.

Governor Matt Bevin has some grit behind his recent win and will be able to get The great Commonwealthnof Kentucky back in track. Please share on your favorite social media page!
