LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Republican U.S. Rep. Thomas Massie has won another term in Kentucky's 4th Congressional District.

The former Lewis County Judge-executive defeated Democrat Seth Hall on Tuesday in the solidly Republican District in northern Kentucky.

Massie, a deficit hawk who often calls for government spending cuts, was first elected to Congress in 2012. Massie has been critical of Democrats and Republicans for what he considers excessive spending.

The conservative lawmaker has also been at the forefront of efforts to revive industrial hemp production in Kentucky.
