FRANKFORT – State Senator Dorsey Ridley, D-Henderson, announced on Wednesday that he will not run for Congress.
“I was honored to have been considered as a candidate for the 1st Congressional District, but after much thought and consideration, my family and I felt that it is not the right time in my life to run for this office,” Ridley said.
“I look forward to continuing my service in the Kentucky State Senate to move our state forward,” he added.
Ridley, who represents the 4th senatorial district, has been a member of the Senate since 2004. The 4th district includes Caldwell, Crittenden, Henderson, Livingston, Union and Webster counties.
