With more than 43% of polls reporting, 71 Republic is calling the Kentucky 4th District Congressional House race in favor of Thomas Massie. As of 8:00PM EST, Rep. Massie (R) has 59.5% of the vote and is firmly leading both challengers Seth Hall (D) and Mike Moffett (I). Massie, who studied at MIT and was Judge-Executive of Lewis County, easily won his home county district.

This will be Massie’s fourth time representing the 4th district of Kentucky. He ran on a message of creating jobs, preserving the strong economy, addressing the looming debt, and in the past has called for exiting our relationship with the United Nations. The liberty-minded Congressman is well known in Congress for his independent streaks and a desire to audit the Federal Reserve. Massie favors lowering taxes and voted against the Omnibus Bill in 2018. In 2017, in fact, he was the sole member of Congress to vote against levying sanctions on North Korea.

Massie has associated himself with the House Liberty Caucus, a libertarian-leaning group inside Congress that includes Chair Justin Amash. The caucus supports economic freedom, individual liberty and adhering to the United States Constitution. He is currently writing a bill titled “The American Sovereignty Restoration Act” which would stop funding for the United Nations completely. He was also endorsed by Rand Paul, Young Americans for Liberty, and Gun Owners of America.

Seth Hall also grew up in the 4th district in Henry County. He was a farmer and went to law school at the Universtiy of Louisville. Hall campaigned on a platform of uniting the nation, embracing diversity and maintaining America’s National parks. In the end, Massie comfortably defeated the Democrat challenger.
