Large voter turnout in Pulaski expected


Somerset —

  Keith Judd, Texarkana, Texas, is a perennial candidate who claims to have run for president each time since 1996. His running mate is Dorne Smith of Newport, Maine.
  Dennis Knill, Sodona, Arizona, says he is an honest hardworking American patriot and statesman, the only and last chance candidate to be able to reform Washington and the bureaucrats. His running mate is David Gilder, also of Sedona.
  Jerry White (born Jerome White), Lathrup Village, Michigan, is an American politician and journalist and member of the Socialist Equality Party of the United States. His running mate is Phyllis Scherrer, Pittsburgh, Pa.
  Names of write-in candidates won’t be on the election ballot. A pencil will be available in the voting booth and there is a space on which to write the name of a presidential candidate.
  Elsewhere, in the 31-county, 5th Congressional District of Kentucky, veteran Congressman Hal Rogers, a Republican from Somerset, will be challenged by Kenneth S. Stepp, Manchester, the Democratic nominee. Rogers was first elected to Congress in 1980.
  Chris Girdler, recently named district director for Rogers, is the unopposed GOP nominee to succeed retiring Vernie McGaha as state senator from the 15th Senatorial District of which Pulaski County is part.
  About 4,000 Pulaski County voters in the 24th House District will help choose between incumbent Terry Mills, a Democrat, and M.J. “Bill” Pickerill, a Republican, for state representative. Both are residents of  Lebanon.
  Pulaski County precincts in the 24th District are Ansel, Buncombe, Mt. Zion, Eubank and Fall Branch.
  Sara Beth Gregory, in the 52th House District; David Meade in the 80th House District; Jeff Hoover in the 83rd House District; and Tommy Turner in the 85th House District, all are unopposed Republicans for election or reelection. Mills, Gregory, Hoover and Turner are incumbents. Meade will succeed retiring Danny Ford in the 80th District.
