LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — The only Democrat in Kentucky’s congressional delegation is making it official that he’s running for re-election this year.
U.S. Rep. John Yarmuth’s campaign says the Louisville Democrat plans to file his candidacy papers on Monday to run for a sixth term.
Yarmuth represents Kentucky’s 3rd Congressional District. He was first elected in 2006 in a district that had been held by Republicans for a decade.
Yarmuth says his priorities in Congress have included efforts to revamp campaign finance laws, combat gun violence, expand health care and veterans’ benefits and improve education.
He has handily won each of his re-election campaigns.
