TAYLOR MILL, Ky. (AP) – Northern Kentucky lawmaker Tom Kerr has withdrawn from the State House race.
According to The Kentucky Enquirer (http://cin.ci/1OEQNX1), records from the Secretary of State’s office show Kerr has withdrawn his candidacy after serving 20 years in the Kentucky House.
Kerr, a Republican from Taylor Mill, could not be reached for comment by the newspaper as to why he’s not seeking re-election.
Kim Moser, the director of the Northern Kentucky Office of Drug Control Policy, has filed to run as a Republican to replace Kerr in the 64th House District. The district includes part of Kenton and Campbell counties.
An experienced nurse, Moser has helped fight the growing heroin epidemic in the state.
