Kentucky primary race tight, only 4 days away

The Kentucky primary is just four days away, and it’s a tight race, with three of the four GOP candidates virtually tied in the polls. 

Hal Heiner released an ad today criticizing two of his opponents. The tone of the ad was very different from the tone at Thursday night’s Lincoln Diner in Louisville. 

The candidates were civil there, making jokes and banding together against the democratic opponent. 

No matter how much the ad shakes up the campaign, voter turnout is still a problem.

There has been an unusually low number of absentee votes in Calloway County. County Clerk Antonia Faulkner has only seen 80 absentee ballots just days before Election Day. She says that’s disappointing because “a lot of time and effort” goes into these elections. 

Calloway County GOP Chairman Greg DeLancey says low turnout is a problem, and campaigns that don’t focus on the issues may keep people away from the polls. 

“We need to encourage our candidates to stay on task, and we need to ignore some of those things that go outside,” DeLancey says. 

Local 6 will have results from all local races in Kentucky’s primary Tuesday night on air and online.
