Todd Lally has claimed the Republican nomination in the third district congressional race. He’ll face incumbent Democrat John Yarmuth in November.

The veteran and UPS pilot says his campaign has a lot of work to do to prepare for that contest.

“Physically, we feel like taking a couple days off, but we need to get into this, we need to raise a lot of money pretty fast,” says Lally. “You come out of a primary with very low resources, so we’re going to have to re-tool and re-vamp our organization a little bit to get bigger and bigger.”

Lally won the nomination with over half the votes cast in the four-way race. Larry Hausman claimed about a quarter of the votes.
