MANCHESTER, Ky (WYMT) - Senator Robert Stivers won his reelection bid for the 25th senate district in Kentucky.
With almost 64 percent of the vote, the Republican will begin his fifth term in the state senate.
He defeated Democrat Ralph Hoskins by almost a two to one margin.
Senator Stivers says he is thankful for all of the support from voters across the district.
"They saw through a lot of misrepresentations and a lot of distortions in my record and some real exaggerations to return me back to the Kentucky State Senate with pretty large numbers," said Senator Stivers.
Senator Stivers says he will now begin gathering support in Frankfort in hopes of becoming the next senate president.
