The entrance of Lewis County Judge-Executive Thomas Massie into the Republican primary for the 4th congressional district is just the latest development in a busy campaign pre-season for Northern Kentucky.
And perhaps the most remarkable part are all the connections between the GOP primaries for Congress, the 23rd state Senate District, 66th state House district and open 63rd state House District.
State Rep. Alecia Webb-Edgington of Fort Wright serves as the center of this web considering she’s vacating one of those spots (63rd House) to run for another (4th Congressional) and has former opponents and allies running in other races.
