Geoff Davis

Democratic congressional candidate Bill Adkins is calling for financial supporters to get behind his campaign now that U.S. Rep. Geoff Davis has resigned from office. Davis resigned abruptly on Tuesday, saying a family medical issue prevented him from fulfilling his congressional responsibilities.

Kentucky 4th District Congressman Geoff Davis announced he's resigning immediately. Davis had announced months ago that he was not seeking re-election but decided to step down now due to what he calls a recent family health issue that will demand significantly more of his time.


As primary campaigns in Kentucky warm up, the highest-profile one is turning into a responsibility blame game. State Representative Alecia Webb-Edgington is  one of six Republicans vying to replace outgoing Fourth Congressional District  Republican Congressman Geoff Davis. And one of her opponents, Boone County Judge-Executive Gary Moore, is criticizing Webb-Edgington for missing crucial votes on the state budget last week.
