Teacher narrowly upsets Kentucky House GOP leader. A sign of things to come?

Brenda tried in the Republican primary election for the 71st House District seat to capitalize on teacher anger against legislators who backed a controversial pension bill in this year's law-making session. It was Brenda's first bid for public office.
