David Yates is the only Democrat to file against Republican incumbent Doug Hawkins in the South End race. Hawkins also faces a GOP primary challenge from Robert Thrasher.
Yates served under Greg Stumbo as an Assistant Attorney General when Stumbo was AG. And Yates' website says his grandfather, James B. Yates Sr. served 22 years in the Kentucky General Assembly.
The $20 per person fundraiser is 5:30pm Wednesday at the MakeSpace Media Studio on South Shelby Street.
