Election Day was full of surprises, both on a national level and here at home. William Brandon Reed defeated long-time democratic incumbent, Terry Mills, in the state representative race by 1,591 votes.
In Marion County, Mills beat Reed with a resounding 5,973 votes to 2,117 votes, but it was LaRue and Green counties that wrote the rest of the story. In Green County, Reed came out ahead 3,812 to 1,344. In LaRue County (where Reed lives), Reed ended the night with 4,634 to Mills’ 1,655.
