Reggie Thomas will vie for the seat in the 13th State Senate District which covers most of Central Lexington.

Thomas is an attorney and teaches criminal justice and business law at KSU.  He lost a bid for the 88th District House Seat last year.

Thomas will face a forthcoming Republican opponent.  A party nominee has not been named yet, but Urban County Councilman Chuck Ellinger has expressed interest in the job.
