Though little change has happened in the Kentucky Democratic US Senate primary election since Tuesday night’s reporting, the race has become closer. After the Secretary of State indicated that results would not be forthcoming until June 30th with an estimated 625,000 votes left to count, Fayette County, the state’s second largest municipality, did release some preliminary numbers and the early result is surprising.
Despite being candidate Amy McGrath’s home county, the very early Fayette numbers project state Rep. Charles Booker (D-Louisville) polling at 72%. This allows him to cut his statewide deficit to 4,066 votes from 5,104. Jefferson County, the state’s largest local entity with a population of more than 760,000 people and is home to Rep. Booker, has yet to report any tallies. Therefore, the projection that the election would tighten even more once the bevy of votes are counted has even more legs especially after seeing the preliminary Fayette returns.
