Kentucky Primary Election Delivers Some Upsets

(Frankfort, KY)  --  Most of Kentucky's political leaders or front runners are headed for the November ballot however Tuesday's primary delivered a few upsets across the state.  

One of the largest upsets came in central Kentucky, where high school teacher R. Travis Brenda narrowly defeated Republican House Majority Floor Leader Jonathan Shell in their Garrard County statehouse district.  

The other upset making headlines came in Lexington, where Amy McGrath beat Lexington Mayor Jim Gray for the chance to take on Republican Congressman Andy Barr in November.

Gay Kim Davis Challenger Loses Primary Bid

(Morehead, KY)  --  November's race for Rowan County clerk likely won't be entirely about same-sex marriage.  

David Ermold, the gay man who was denied a marriage license by clerk Kim Davis back in 2015, lost yesterday's Democratic primary.  

Elwood Caudill will be the Democratic candidate in the fall.  

Ermold raised almost 200-thousand-dollars in his bid, including celebrity donations from Amy Schumer.  But he fell short.  

Davis will be the Republican candidate.  She didn't have an opponent yesterday.
