As the results of the primary election were read Tuesday night at the Anderson County courthouse, it was clear that Kent Stevens had won every precinct in the county.
Not long after that, Stevens heard he had won the seat for the Kentucky State Representative in the 55th district by just more than 1,000 votes.
Stevens won the race with 55 percent of the vote, carrying Spencer and Anderson counties. In Anderson County alone, he won 79 percent of the vote. Incumbent state Rep. Milward Dedman carried Mercer County, getting 45 percent of the overall vote.
