Can Thomas Massie woo NKY’s GOP voters?
Those who follow Northern Kentucky politics are aware that four-term Republican Congressman Geoff Davis is retiring this year, and two well-known GOP politicians have announced their interest in replacing him. Boone County Judge-executive Gary Moore and state Rep. Alicia Webb-Edgington are part of the Republican establishment in Northern Kentucky and were likely candidates for the job.
But there’s another face in the race, a Lewis County businessman and inventor who hails from the eastern edge of the 4th Congressional District. Thomas Massie comes to the primary with strong ties to the Tea Party and the Rand and Ron Paul brand of libertarian, small-government politics.
