The 44 members of the Kentucky House Republican Caucus selected Hoover to once again lead them during a meeting today in Frankfort.
“I am truly humbled to once again serve our caucus and the Commonwealth as House Republican Floor Leader,” said Rep. Hoover. “It is a duty and responsibility I take seriously, and with the support of my fellow legislators and my district I will work hard on the issues and ideas that are essential to moving Kentucky forward.”
Hoover’s 83rd district includes his native Clinton County, as well as Russell County where he currently resides and a portion of Pulaski County.
Hoover has served as House Republican Floor Leader since 2001, making him the longest serving House Republican Floor Leader in Kentucky’s history. He previously broke the record of five consecutive terms set by former Republican Representative William Harold DeMarcus when he was elected Republican Floor Leader in 2011.
Before being elected as House Republican Floor Leader, Hoover served as House Republican Caucus Chair from 1999 to 2001. He was first elected to serve the 83rd District in the Kentucky House of Representatives in 1997.
