Kenneth Stepp announces for Congress KY-5.
Kenneth Stepp announced that Kenneth Stepp is a Democratic candidate for the U.S. House of Representatives for the Kentucky Fifth District. In 2006, Kenneth Stepp was the Democratic nominee for the position against incumbent Republican U.S. Congressman Hal Rogers, after winning the Democratic Primary with approx. 70% of the vote. Although Kenneth Stepp carried sixty per cent (60%) of the vote in Bath County in the November general election that year, Hal Rogers was re-elected to Congress that year. Since then, Kentucky's Republican Governor and Lieutenant Governor have been replaced by Kentucky's Democratic Governor and Lieutenant Governor, and America's Republican President and Vice President have been replaced by America's Democratic President and Vice President. Also, the Republican majorities in the U.S. Senate and U.S. House of the 2006 election campaign season have been replaced by Democratic majorities in the U.S. Senate and U.S. House. Perhaps the 72-year-old Republican Hal Rogers will be swept back into office with his "Stay the Course" slogan, but he might be replaced by a younger Democrat like Kenneth Stepp.
