FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - At least nine state representatives have filed for re-election ahead of next year's legislative races.
All of Kentucky's 100 House seats will be up for grabs as will half of the 38 Senate seats, though it's not unusual for incumbents to go unchallenged in either the primary or general elections.
Incumbent Republicans who have filed candidacy papers with the secretary of state's office include C.B. Embry Jr. of Morgantown, Jim DeCesare of Rockfield, Ron Crimm of Louisville, David Floyd of Bardstown and Kim King of Harrodsburg.
Incumbent Democrats who have filed include Wilson Stone of Scottsville, Thomas Burch of Louisville, Carl P. Rollins II of Midway and John Short of Hindman.
The filing deadline is still some two months away.
