HICKMAN COUNTY, KY (KFVS) - Hickman County Attorney, Jason Batts, has formally announced his campaign for Kentucky's 1st Congressional District.

"I've decided to run for Congress because I know we can do better in Washington,"  Batts said.

"The career politicians have failed us. As a strong conservative, I will fight for our values in Washington by opposing the tax and spend liberals in D.C."

In 2015, Jason Batts became the first Republican elected to countywide office in Hickman County, when he earned the position of County Attorney.

Prior to serving the people of Hickman County, Batts served in the United States military.

Batts is a Judge Advocate in the United State Army Reserves, where he has served as a prosecutor.
