Congressman Brett Guthrie

Second District Kentucky Congressman Brett Guthrie says he was hopeful President Obama would outline his plan to try to work with the House and Senate to address national problems in his State of the Union address Tuesday night. Instead, the Bowling Green Republican says, all he heard was a laundry list of priorities that, "not only cost billions of dollars in new spending, but do not address our country's core ailments."

A Libertarian candidate from LaRue County says he is planning to run for the SecondĀ  District U.S. House seat currently held by Republican Brett Guthrie. Craig Astor, the former Chairman of the LaRue County Republican Party, says he will make his candidacy official next Monday.
