Could former congresswoman Anne Northup have one more run in her?
WHAS11s Mark Hebert has learned that Northup is considering a run for her old congressional seat. Once again taking on John Yarmuth.
There was plenty of speculation that Anne Northup might be done with statewide politics after losing her second race in a row, her defeat in the governors race last year. But Northups still got plenty of support in Louisville and it sounds like she might try to ride that support back to Washington:
Anne Northup looks well rested and sounds like shes excited about the possibility of running to get back her old 3rd district seat in congress:
Northup is considering a potential rematch with democratic congressman John Yarmuth after getting a surprise from the man she was supporting in the race. But friend and former federal prosecutor Erwin Roberts has been notified that hes about to be called up to active duty in the army reserves, essentially dooming his run for congress and leaving republicans looking for someone to challenge the freshman congressman, Yarmuth:

This is a good development, as Northup remains well-liked in the district.
As it should be. From all accounts, Yarmuth is a fluky moonbat. The last rodent to win a 2nd term from Louisville was Romano Mazzoli, a moderate pro-lifer.
He can’t do anything but make boilerplate arguments.
His vote for the Ramadan resolution, but not voting for the Christmas resolution, was a huge blunder.
I only wished that Northup was Governor. Fletcher left office with a 60+ Disapproval. Baesher is coming into office with a 60+ Approval.
Annie gets our guns.
I’m not sure that even if she had been the nominee she would’ve won. Fletcher damaged the party label, too. The coup d’etat was successful.
Best of luck to Northup. I hope she wins.
Perhaps not, but we would have at least had a fighting chance. No one was excited at all about being involved in the governor’s race.
He voted against a resolution for Christmas?
