FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - A top-ranking Democrat in the Kentucky
House says he won't seek another term this fall, even though he's
unopposed in this year's primary and general elections.
House Majority Whip Rob Wilkey says he's he'll forgo a seventh
term representing the state's 22nd District, which covers three
counties in south-central Kentucky. Wilkey was first elected to the
Kentucky House in 1996.
Wilkey said in a statement released Thursday that he's planning
to finish his term which runs through the end of the year. Wilkey's
successor would be picked in the November election.
Wilkey says he wants to spend more time with his family. He is
married and has two children.
