Democrats rally for 2014 election



Amie Hacker, who opposed Republican Senator Albert Robinson for a seat in Frankfort, did not disclose her future political plans publicly other than to say, “Never say never. What I can say is “coming soon to a voting booth near you is Amie Hacker, Part 2.”

Local attorney Steve Jones also made his bid for Laurel/Knox county Family Court Judge, a position currently filled by Durenda Lundy Lawson, who is also rumored to re-run for that job next year.

As the U.S. Senate race heats up between long-time Congressman Mitch McConnell and current Kentucky Secretary of State Allison Lundegren Grimes, Grimes’ father spoke on her behalf.

Although Kentucky usually hosts an annual election in May and November, 2013 is one of those years when no elections are held. However, candidates are gearing up for the upcoming year, already campaigning as the deadline to file draws nearer.

The fish fry is a fundraiser for the Laurel County Democratic Women’s organization and is held at the Laurel-London Optimist Club.
