We have issued a Severe Weather Alert Day to keep you informed on possible negative impacts to travel through Monday afternoon.
FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - Republican state Rep. Sara Beth Gregory has won a special election for a Senate seat from southern Kentucky, defeating Williamsburg teacher and Democrat Bill Conn by more than a 4-1 margin to replace former Sen. David Williams.
In unofficial returns from Tuesday's balloting, Gregory received 6,244 votes to 1,440 for Conn, who was making his first run for public office.
The heavily Republican 16th District includes Clinton, Cumberland, McCreary, Monroe, Wayne and Whitley counties, along the southern Kentucky border.
Gregory, an attorney, was elected last year to represent the 52nd House District that covers McCreary and Wayne counties and part of Pulaski County and won a second term on Nov. 6.
Williams was appointed to a circuit judgeship this fall. He had served in the Senate since 1987 and had been Senate president since 2000.
