WASHINGTON (AP/WSAZ) - Harold Rogers has won the Republican nomination for U.S. House in Kentucky’s 5th Congressional District, the Associated Press reports Tuesday night.

Rep. Rogers has served in the House since 1981.

He will face Democrat Conor Halbleib in the general election which is set for Nov. 8.

Rogers released the following statement:

“I am humbled to be chosen as the Republican nominee for Kentucky’s 5th District. It is a privilege to serve in Congress, and I promise to never stop working for the mountains. Joe Biden and his liberal allies may want to destroy our way of life, but I’ll always fight for our pro-life, pro-gun values. This November, Kentuckians can vote to stop Biden and Pelosi and stand up for a secure border, strong law enforcement, and policies that grow the economy.”
