Louie R. Guenthner, Jr. (August 9, 1944 – August 7, 2012),[1][2] was an attorney from Louisville, Kentucky, who was a Republican former member of the Kentucky House of Representatives, having represented the 48th District in Jefferson County from 1973 to 1988. He was defeated in the 1988 primary election by fellow Republican Susan Bush Stokes.

Guenthner was the Republican nominee for the United States Senate from Kentucky in 1978; he lost to the incumbent Democrat Walter Huddleston. Six years later, Mitch McConnell, also of Jefferson County, upset Huddleston, who then became a Washington, D.C.,-based lobbyist.[3]
