An Interview with KY 5th District State House Rep Kenny Imes.
Kentucky’s 5th District State Representative Kenny Imes spent four terms as representative in the 70’s. Now Imes has returned to Frankfort again in 2013 to represent the residents of Calloway and Trigg counties. Imes recently spoke with Shelly Baskin about his plan to ensure state’s rights are respected by the federal government, as well as his thoughts on the most important parts of this session’s legislative agenda.
Kentucky Democrats successfully defended their control of the state House -- but they're now stranded on a political island. It appears that Republicans will take control of the Arkansas House of Representatives, leaving Kentucky as the only southern state with a Democratic-controlled House. And that will make Kentucky House Democrats a big blue target in future years. The Kentucky state House will remain in Democratic control for at least two more years, when all 100 seats in the body are back on the ballot.
