LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - The newest member of the Kentucky Senate will be sworn in on Thursday.

Lexington lawyer Reggie Thomas will be sworn in by Kentucky Supreme Court Justice Mary Noble at the Lyric Theater in Lexington.

Thomas was elected last month from the 13th District in Lexington to succeed retiring Sen. Kathy Stein, who was appointed to a judicial position. Thomas and Stein are both Democrats.

Republicans outnumber Democrats 23-14 in the Senate.

The General Assembly convenes in regular session on Tuesday.
