An English professor at Murray State University has won the Democratic nomination in Kentucky's 1st Congressional District.
Walker said he didn't expect to win by such a large margin. He said going forward, his biggest challenge will be to compete with incumbent James Comer's campaign fundraising efforts as a sitting congressman.
"However, I think there are a lot of people who feel dissatisfied or abandoned in ways because of some of the things that have come through the federal government," Walker said. "So I think we can overcome those challenges, because people are hungry for change and I think that will make a difference."
Walker said he doesn’t want to lose the enthusiasm or the anger coming from teachers. "I think we can keep that alive, I don't think teachers are going to forget," Walker said.
