Gov. Steve Beshear has set a special election for Dec. 10 to replace former Democratic state Rep. John Arnold of Sturgis, who resigned last month after being accused of sexual harassment.
Arnold, a retired chiropractor, had served in the House since 1995.
Beshear also set a special election for Dec. 10 to replace Democratic state Sen. Kathy Stein of Lexington, who resigned to accept a judicial appointment in Fayette County.
The elections will be held under the state's newly drawn legislative districts.
