This week in Kentucky politics, a Republican won a historically Democratic seat in the state House of Representatives during a special election. And the Kentucky Democratic Party called for a Republican state senator to resign after he made homophobic remarks during a campaign event. Jonese Franklin from member station WFPL talked to Ryland Barton for this week’s edition of Kentucky Politics Distilled.
