Voters in Daviess County are deciding several races for the Kentucky legislature. Perhaps the most high profile contest on the ballot is a rematch between State Representative Jim Glenn and DJ Johnson for the 13th District House seat. Their last contest was a nail-biter.
Glenn, a Democrat, held the office for ten years before he was defeated by Johnson, a Republican, in 2016. Two years later, Glenn won the seat back by one vote.
Johnson requested a recount, which resulted in a tie. But a lawyer for Glenn filed a complaint with the office of the Kentucky Attorney General, claiming an attorney for Johnson illegally influenced the recount process. Johnson’s lawyer denied the charge, but Johnson later announced he was dropping his challenge in order to end the controversy.
