Kentucky State Senate

Beshear Sets Special Election For State Senate Seat

Jan 5, 2015

Some northeastern Kentucky voters will not have a state senator for the majority of the 2015 legislative session.  State Sen. Walter Blevins resigned from his seat on Sunday to become judge executive of Rowan County. On Monday, Democratic Gov. Steve Beshear ordered a special election on March 3 to replace him. State law requires at least a 56-day notice before a special election.
