No Surprises Expected in Most Congressional Primaries
Residents of Kentucky's Fourth Congressional District will see a spirited primary Tuesday, but that won’t be the case elsewhere.
While there are primaries in most of Kentucky’s five other congressional districts, none are as competitive or as closely-followed as the race in Northern Kentucky.
In the Sixth District, Republican Andy Barr is expected to easily win the chance for a rematch with Congressman Ben Chandler.
And Third District Congressman John Yarmuth's primary challenger is unlikely to take much of the vote.
But in the Fourth District, seven Republicans and two Democrats are vying to replace outgoing Congressman Geoff Davis. The seat is expected to go to the GOP nominee in November, but without Davis in the running, the Republican primary has been a close, competitive race.
