Amy McGrath wins Democratic Senate primary in Kentucky
KENTUCKY (WKYT) - Amy McGrath wins Democratic Senate primary in Kentucky.
McConnell Senate Committee’s press secretary released the following statement Tuesday after Amy McGrath was declared the winner of the U.S. Senate Democratic primary:
“Extreme Amy McGrath is lucky to have gotten out of the primary with a victory, but her reputation sustained significant damage all across Kentucky. McGrath is just another tool of the Washington Democratic establishment who has no idea what matters most to Kentuckians. It’s clear this self-proclaimed most liberal person in Kentucky who supports government-run health care and abortion even in the ninth month does not represent Kentucky values. Amy, it’s great to have you.”
A full week of waiting is finally over, after an unusual primary in Kentucky.
Election officials across the state will finish sorting through ballots ahead of today’s deadline.
One of the biggest races in the primary is the Democratic Senate race.
Amy McGrath and Charles Booker are the front runners vying for a chance to challenge Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell in November.
Elections officials declared Booker the winner of Fayette County Tuesday morning.
So far, Jefferson County has only released in-person voting totals.
All counties must turn in results by the end of the day.
The majority of voters cast absentee ballots this year. Both the secretary of state and the governor encouraged it, in light of the global pandemic.
The secretary of state says voter turnout, and that includes voting early or absentee, could be record-setting for a primary.
