Louisville, KY – The Kentucky senate will have a new member after a special election in Louisville Tuesday.
Republican Debbie Peden is taking on democrat Perry Clark in the 37th district election.
The seat's been open since the fall of 2004 after that election was successfully challenged in court.
Clark gave up his seat in the Kentucky house to focus on this race. Peden is a former teacher who is married to a member of the Louisville metro council.
The seat was left open after democrat Virginia Woodward challenged the victory by republican Dana Seum Stephenson. Stephenson was eventually ruled ineligible because of residency requirements. Woodward couldn't serve because she didn't get the most votes.
