05/17/2016 06:57 PM
Campaign officials with Dan Johnson’s campaign told Pure Politics just before 7pm that Johnson has called McKenzie Cantrell to concede.
The campaign released this statement:
“I have spoken with mckenzie and congratulated her. I told her I will be there to help however I can in the fall. Now we must all get behind mckenzie to defeat party-switcher Butler in November,” Dan Johnson.
Cantrell is a Louisville Lawyer with the Kentucky Equal Justice Center. She will now face Rep. Denny Butler, a one-time Democrat who switched to the GOP after big Republican victories in November.
