    The 2012 election was the first time Marion County was part of Kentucky’s First Congressional District, but the 2014 race will be familiar to many voters.
    Two years ago, incumbent Republican Congressman Ed Whitfield defeated Democratic challenger Charles Hatchett, winning 34 of the 35 counties in the district. Marion County was the only county that Hachett won.
    In the spring, Hatchett won the Democratic primary to earn a second shot at Whitfield, who has represented the First District since he was elected in 1994.

    Three of the candidates are sitting supervisors, while one is a newcomer who has run for some other offices in recent years.
