Election Edge: Primary Night In Kentucky - RECAP



Voter turnout was described as light, at best, across the state of Kentucky Tuesday, as voters cast their ballots in the May Primary Election. Many counties reported turnout rates of below 30-percent.

As expected, the primary races for U.S. Senate were declared over early in the evening. Both Mitch McConnell and Alison Lundergan Grimes were declared the winners by multiple sources just moments after the polls had close in western Kentucky.

The race that many had expected for Hopkinsville Mayor in the November General Election will take place. Former Chamber President Carter Hendricks won the Republican Primary, while former State Senator Joey Pendleton won the Democratic Primary. The two will square off in what figures to be a hotly contested race in the fall. 

In the countywide races, incumbent Sheriff Livy Leavell won the Democratic Primary and will face Chuck Inman in November. Incumbent Jailer Brad Boyd was a winner in his primary race and will get another term.

In the one contested race for magistrate in the May Primary, Mark Wells defeated incumbent Edwin Long and Henry Snorton. Wells will face Ricky Capps in November.

In the races for Hopkinsville City Council, incumbents have been the story of the night, with Jimmy Dossett winning in Ward 10, Wesley Grimes winning in Ward 11, and Phillip Brooks winning Ward 12. The upset came in Ward 7, where Terry Lee Parker defeated incumbent Buddy Oglesby.

It was a good night for incumbents in Trigg County, as Sheriff Ray Burnam, Jailer James Hughes, and PVA Mike Bryan all won their respective primaries. Newcomer Carmen Finley won the Democratic Primary for Trigg County Clerk.
