Election: Primary, May 22, 2012 Adair Co., KY

Mark Polston carries Western Counties of Adair, Russell, and Casey, but heavy turnout in Pulaski makes Chris Girdler the winner in the Republican Primary Election, and with no opposition in the general election, the next 15th District 15 Kentucky State Senator, succeeding Adair County native Vernie McGaha. Word from Russell County is that incumbent Circuit Court Clerk Tony Kerr won re-election easily.
