Fourth Congressional District

Tea party candidate Thomas Massie has won the GOP nomination in Kentucky’s Fourth Congressional District.

Massie has the backing of many national tea party groups and of U.S. Senator Rand Paul. The Lewis County Judge-Executive gathered just under half of the vote in a seven person primary, greatly out-distancing his two closest contenders.
