Governor Beshear Sets Election Date For Williams' Replacement

FRANKFORT, Ky. - Gov. Steve Beshear has scheduled an election for Dec. 18 to replace former state Sen. David Williams in southern Kentucky's 16th District.

Two potential candidates have already announced they will seek the Republican nomination for the seat left vacant when Williams accepted an appointment to become a circuit judge.
 
State Rep. Sara Beth Gregory, a Monticello lawyer, said she intends to run, as has Albany lawyer David Cross, who would be a first-time candidate.
 
Beshear, a Democrat, appointed Williams to the judicial position last month.
