Kentucky church member elected to Congress


Brett Guthrie, a member of the Lehman Avenue church in Bowling Green, Ky., was elected to Congress in Kentucky’s highly contested 2nd District.
Lehman Avenue minister Michael Greene said he has no doubt Guthrie’s faith will play a positive role in how he represents his constituents.
“He and his whole family take their faith very seriously,” Greene told The Christian Chronicle.
Guthrie will join at least two other Church of Christ members at the nation’s Capitol: Texas Sen. John Cornyn, a member of the University Avenue church in Austin, and Texas Rep. Ted Poe, a member of the Bammel church in Houston. Both Republicans were re-elected.
Guthrie defeated Democrat and fellow state Sen. David Boswell in the Nov. 4 general election, keeping the seat in Republican hands after incumbent U.S. Rep. Ron Lewis declined to seek another term.
The race attracted national interest from both political parties, with Vice President Dick Cheney raising money in Lexington, Ky., for Guthrie, and the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee spending more than $1.2 million on Boswell’s bid, the Louisville Courier-Journal reported.
