Schrage will face incumbent, Dennis Keene (D-Wilder), who has represented district 67 since 2005.

Schrage, a Northern Kentucky University professor and Dayton resident said his campaign will  focus on economic growth and community service.

“I’ve spent my life working to improve my community and Northern Kentucky,” said Schrage. “That’s why I’m running for the Kentucky General Assembly’s 67th House District. The people of Northern Kentucky deserve someone with tested experience, and I believe that my past as an active leader in the community is just what this district needs to grow and thrive.”

I look forward to hitting the campaign trail and hearing from the voters.”
