There will be a congressional election in Kentucky’s First District, as a Henderson Doctor has filed the necessary paperwork to run.
Seeking the Democratic nomination for Congress is Doctor James Buckmaster of Henderson, who ran an unsuccessful Democratic Primary for the U.S. Senate in 2010—when Attorney Jack Conway eventually got the nomination.
Doctor Buckmaster came to Hopkinsville during that campaign and touted himself as a conservative Democrat who is pro-life, pro-gun and anti-gay marriage.
Buckmaster has no opponent for the primary at this point, though the filing deadline for Congress very well could be pushed back due to re-districting issues.
He would face incumbent Republican Ed Whitield, should he get the nomination.
