A veteran, born and raised in Fleming county
Josh Hicks grew up on a farm in Fleming County, and played football at Fleming County High School. Compelled by his father’s work in construction and his family’s history of military service, Josh spent a year as an ironworker before enlisting in the U.S. Marine Corps. He’s had a career as a police officer and a lawyer, and will bring the values of hard work and public service to Washington.
Ready to take on the special interests in Washington
Josh isn’t accepting corporate PAC money in his campaign, because he knows it is an important first step toward restoring people’s faith in our democracy. He is running to fix the rigged system so that it works for real Kentuckians, not for the special interests. He will be an advocate for reform in Congress.
A chance to hold a bought-and-paid-for Republican accountable
Republican Andy Barr has taken over $2.4 million from corporate PACs over the course of his career, making him beholden to his big donors instead of being able to represent the people of Kentucky. Democratic Governor Andy Beshear won this district by 14 points in the 2019 gubernatorial race, and this seat came within three points of flipping in 2018. With a grassroots army behind him, Josh is ensuring this is a race to watch.
