Lucas Wants His Seat Back

Former Rep. Ken Lucas (D-KY) "came out of political retirement Monday to challenge freshman Rep. Geoff Davis (R-KY) for the congressional seat that he gave up after three terms to fulfill a campaign pledge," the AP reports.

CQ Politics says "the comeback try by the 72-year-old Lucas, who did not seek re-election in 2004, dramatically shifts the prospects for serious competition in the 4th. CQ has changed its Election Forecaster rating to Leans Republican ó a highly competitive category ó from its uncompetitive Safe Republican category."
