Davis, Bunning Endorse Webb-Edgington for Congress

Congressman Geoff Davis and former U.S. Senator Jim Bunning announced they are backing Republican congressional candidate Alecia Webb-Edgington in the crowded primary race for Kentucky’s Fourth Congressional District seat.

The two endorsements are a needed boost for Webb-Edgington's campaign, which trails third in fundraising behind Boone County Judge-Executive Gary Moore and Lewis County Judge-Executive Thomas Massie.

Bunning held the congressional seat for 12 years before being elected to the Senate, and Davis currently holds the office, but announced his retirement late last year.

"Jim Bunning and Geoff Davis have set the gold standard for principled conservative leadership in Congress and effective constituent services," says Webb-Edgington. "I am truly honored to have their support and will seek to follow their example if I’m elected."
