Live results: 2020 Kentucky Senate primaries
A week after the June 23 primaries, the November matchup is set: Amy McGrath, the DSCC-backed retired fighter pilot, will face Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell in the general election. She won the primary, holding off a surge from state legislator Charles Booker, who tapped into the energy of the movement for racial justice and won endorsements from several high-profile liberals on the national stage.
Ballots had to be postmarked by Tuesday and received by June 27. Only one polling place was open per county. The state had early voting, and anyone who wanted to could vote absentee by mail.
With about 97 percent of the expected vote counted, Amy McGrath (D) has won; 100 percent of precincts are reporting.
