FOP Endorses Rep. Nemes in Contentious Re-Election Fight

Democrats are on the attack in the 33rd House District race where the state Fraternal Order of Police has just endorsed incumbent Republican Rep. Jason Nemes.

Democrats are bullish in the fight for this suburban district that stretches from the Middletown area of Louisville into parts of Oldham and Shelby Counties.

Nemes faces Kate Turner, who has been throwing punches over the abortion issue forcing Nemes to defend his pro-life stance.

On Tuesday, Ryan Straw the Vice President and Governmental Affairs Director for the Kentucky State Fraternal Order of Police announced their endorsement of Nemes in the race.

“There are few who rise to answer the phone everytime the @KYSTATEFOP has a concern or question…one of those few is @jmnemes /Bi-partisan, fair, honest-Rep. Nemes is what LEO and all of our Commonwealth need in Frankfort. If you are in the 33rd-VOTE,” Straw wrote online.

Nemes pushed the message to his audience, saying he supports law enforcement and reminded voters of rising crime.

“I support our law enforcement community because they work to keep us safe,” Nemes said. “With crime on the rise, we need to stand with the men and women who make up the thin blue line and their families, who sacrifice so much. In short, I Back the Blue. I hope you do, too.”

Election Day is Nov. 8.
