Barrows Out, AG Denies Job Talks

Rep. Joe Barrows (D-Versailles), sponsor of the doomed casino gambling bill in this year's General Assembly session, has withdrawn from what was going to be an uphill re-election campaign.

Despite widespread rumors to the contrary, AG spokeswoman Vicki Glass denied that Barrows is about to take a position in the Attorney General's office.

Republican Kevin Locke faces weak Democrat opposition for the 56th district seat this November.
