U.S. Rep. Andy Barr re-elected, Nancy Jo Kemper concedes in the same way she campaigned
11/08/2016 07:46 PM
Democratic 6th Congressional District candidate Nancy Jo Kemper hoped the political climate would help her defeat two-term U.S. Rep. Andy Barr. But Kemper conceded to Barr just before 7:30.
Former Lieutenant Governor of Kentucky Crit Luallen congratulated Kemper stepping up to run and for keeping the race based on what’s important to the people.
This was the first political campaign for Kemper who is 73 years old. She’s also a grandmother and minister who took leave from the church to pursue this race.
The lack of political experience did not stop Kemper from going on the attack against her opponent, casting Barr as a “country-club kid” out-of-touch with working class families in the district.
