LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Republican U.S. Rep. Thomas Massie has won a third term in Kentucky's 4th congressional district.
Massie was leading Democratic challenger Peter Newberry in early returns Tuesday.
The former Lewis County judge executive was first elected to Congress in 2012 after a special election to succeed former Rep. Geoff Davis, who resigned for family health issues. Massie said he supports mandatory term limits of 12 years for representatives and senators.
Newberry is an attorney and owner of Newberry Bros. Coffee in Newport. He criticized Massie for being too focused on raising money and campaigning while Congress was not in session. He said members of congress should be limited to one six-year term so they would not have to run for re-election.
