Northup Hopes To Re-Claim Congressional Seat

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - A political adviser to Anne Northup says
the former congresswoman has decided to run this year to again
represent a Louisville-area district.
Northup campaign adviser Ted Jackson said Monday that the
Republican will file candidacy papers in Frankfort on Tuesday for the Third District, which she represented for five terms.
Democratic Rep. John Yarmuth has already filed for a second term.
Yarmuth defeated Northup two years ago, capitalizing on voter unrest with President Bush and the Iraq war.
Two other Republicans have also entered the race - Louisville
builder Chris Thieneman and Bob DeVore Jr.

    Another career politician who can't figure out what to do with themselves once they are out of office. Here's a reality check...get a job like the rest of us and quit making your living off our tax dollars. It's not the fact I don't like Anne Northrup, it's just all politicians can't figure out what to do with themselves once the ride is over.
