Clark Defeats Thieneman in District 37 Senate Race
Kentucky state Senator Perry Clark, a Democrat, has been reelected to the District 37 seat in southwest Louisville. Clark beat Republican challenger Chris Thieneman with 58 percent of the vote. Thieneman outspent Clark in the race, but was plagued in the last weeks of his campaign with a lawsuit that questioned his residency. With Clark’s win, the lawsuit is essentially rendered moot, and Clark says he’s confident he would have won even without the legal challenge.
