Amy McGrath has been declared the winner of the Democratic Senate race in Kentucky’s primary election, according to the Associated Press.
Around 12:15 p.m. Tuesday, the Associated Press called the race in McGrath’s favor.
Tuesday morning, elections officials declared Charles Booker the winner of Kentucky’s two most populous counties, Fayette and Jefferson. But McGrath is better known around the state.
McGrath also likely benefited from some of the early absentee voting before social justice issues gave Booker a boost.
