Just one day before Attorney John Tilley (D-Hopkinsville) was to announce his candidacy for the eight district representative seat in Trigg County, incumbent James Carr (R-Hopkinsville) announced his intent to run again, this time as a member of the GOP.

Carr switched parties earlier this year, however colleagues at the state level seemed to support him in his reelection campaign.

“Regardless of the circumstances, we can count on James to stand up for the values and principles that make this the greatest state in the nation,” House Republican Floor Leader Jeff Hoover said.

In his rookie term, Carr was one of three first-time representatives to sponsor a bill into law in the 2005 General Assembly. House Bill 189 provided service men and women who hold professional licenses to extend the validity of their licenses to coincide with their release from combat.
