Rodney Scott defeats longtime Pike County Sheriff in primary

PIKEVILLE, Ky. (WYMT) - Another long time office holder in Pike County, Sheriff Charles 'Fuzzy' Keesee, was defeated last night.

Current Pike County jailer, Rodney Scott, beat Sheriff Keesee in the primary.

Keesee has served the people there for 41 years.

Scott says, "I am just overwhelmed by it. Sheriff Keesee held the position for 41 years and he deserves all the honor and accolades he receives ... I am just overwhelmed by it."

Since no republicans filed, Scott will run unopposed in November unless there is a write-in candidate.
