FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) — Louisville urologist Michael Macfarlane has announced he will seek the Republican nomination to challenge Democratic U.S. Rep. John Yarmuth in Kentucky's 3rd District.
Macfarlane is a Republican activist who is a longtime member of the state GOP's executive committee.
Macfarlane, a Louisville resident since 1992, performs urologic surgeries at Jewish Hospital, Norton Healthcare, and Baptist East. He is seeking to replace Kentucky's only Democratic congressman. Yarmuth has represented the Louisville area since 2007 when he defeated Republican incumbent Anne Northup.
Republicans hold Kentucky's other five congressional seats as well as both of the state's Senate seats.
