Democrat Roberts Wins Special Election for 67th House District

Democrat Rachel Roberts is the new state representative for the 67th district.

Roberts won Tuesday's special election handily over Republican opponent Mary Jo Wedding.

Roberts received 2,955 votes (64%)  to Wedding's 1,649 (36%), according to Campbell County Clerk Jim Luersen's office.

The win marks a hold for the Kentucky Democratic Party. The seat, which represents northern Campbell Co. in Frankfort, was previously held by Democrat Dennis Keene, of Wilder, who first took office in 2005. Keene vacated the seat late last year to become commissioner of the Department of Local Government in the administration of Governor Andy Beshear.
