Special Election Announced for Shaughnessy Seat
FRANKFORT, KY - A special election has been announced for a successor to fill the Kentucky Senate seat formerly held by Republican Tim Shaughnessy of Louisville.
Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes says the deadline to file is Oct. 9, but the special election doesn't change the deadlines for the regular election to choose a senator for the new term beginning Jan. 1. The special election and the regular election will both be held on Nov. 6.
Shaughnessy, who had served in the Senate since 1989, resigned effective June 29, six months ahead of his planned retirement.
