The political stakes are high in the upcoming midterm elections and Republicans in west Kentucky are preparing for a challenge as Democrats are looking to regain control as federal and state levels. The GOP also sees an opportunity in sharing recent accomplishments paired with conservative values to flip the last two Democratic state House seats in far west Kentucky and to gain further control over a region where Democratic support was once strong but has eroded over the past decades.
