The Republican nominee for the 16th District State Representative seat says he’s fighting an uphill battle in funding, but that the campaign is going well.
Russellville native Chris Hightower says he’s met with many residents of Todd and Logan County this year on the campaign trail and most have voiced as much concern about what’s going on in Washington as they do about happenings in Frankfort.
Hightower, who was a leader in Senator Rand Paul’s campaign, vows to not take part in the state pension system if elected.
Hightower recently received the endorsement of the Kentucky Right to Life Foundation. He faces incumbent Democrat Martha Jane King in the November General Election.
