This year's race for State Representative just became even more important.
Citing a battle with cancer, Democrat Doug Mullins has dropped out of the 51st District race.
Mullins, a current Campbellsville City Council member, ran unopposed in the May primary. He would have faced Republican John "Bam" Carney in the November General Election in an attempt to fill the term vacated by Russ Mobley, R-Campbellsville.
Mobley will not seek re-election for health reasons.
