LEXINGTON, Ky.: Terry McBrayer, a political power broker in Kentucky as a lawmaker and a Democratic Party leader whose influence reached beyond the state, has died. He was 83.

Milward Funeral Directors in Lexington on Sunday confirmed McBrayer’s death. No cause or date of death was given.

McBrayer was a senior member at a Lexington law firm he started in 1963 and was a longtime Democratic National Committee member. He led the Kentucky campaign for President Bill Clinton in 1992 and 1996.

McBrayer was elected state party chairman in 1995.

U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Kentucky, said in a statement that for over 50 years, Terry McBrayer was a force of nature in Kentucky politics. When Terry set his mind on a goal, he refused to be outworked. Thats how a lawyer from Greenup built a national reputation and a lasting legacy.

We may have come from different sides of politics, but we shared a deep love of our Commonwealth and a determination to help it succeed. Terry was always ready to extend kindness, even to political rivals.

McBrayer earned degrees from Morehead State University and the University of Louisville law school. He represented Greenup County in the Kentucky House from 1966 until 1976. He ran for governor in 1979, losing in the primary to John Y. Brown Jr.

“I was in awe of him before I got into politics,” former Kentucky House Speaker Jeff Hoover said on Twitter. “As a legislator, we became friends and shared many conversations about politics, law practice, and life, most recently few months ago. Friend. Great Kentuckian. He will be missed.

Funeral arrangements were pending Sunday.
