With majority control of the Kentucky House of Representatives once again up for grabs there could be a bevy of closely watched contests as Democratic candidates try and hold ground and Republicans once again attempt to become the majority.
The House has been under Democratic control since 1921, and in recent years Democratic membership has dwindled. Democrats currently hold 53 seats to Republicans 47.
As primary races were wrapping up Tuesday night, Republican analyst Les Fugate and Democratic analyst Sherman Brown gave their off-the-cuff lists for potential general election races to watch.
