Previewing Kentucky's primary races ahead of May 17 elections
05/08/2016 08:15 AM
Kentucky’s primary is less than two-weeks away and across the commonwealth legislators are preparing to defend their seats as challengers make moves to upset incumbents.
Democratic and Republican analysts say there are a handful of races at play where upsets are possible and rhetoric is getting amped-up.
One of the more interesting races to watch will be the six-person Democratic U.S. Senate primary, and what impact the presidential race could have on turnout in the race. The winner of the primary will likely face Republican U.S. Sen. Rand Paul in the fall, who faces token opposition on primary night.
There are also a few House and Senate races Republican analyst Les Fugate and Democratic analyst Sherman Brown identified as being one’s to watch on May 17. Some of the races to watch include campaigns which will essentially choose the next representative for the district.
Get more analysis from Fugate and Brown live on Election night, May 17, on Pure Politics beginning at 7:00 pm on Time Warner Cable.
