Kentucky Democrats begin wait for Senate election results

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) — Kentucky’s Democratic Senate primary went into overtime Wednesday as the candidates anxiously awaited the counting of absentee ballots to determine who will advance to challenge Republican Majority Leader Mitch McConnell in the fall campaign.
All absentee ballots had to be postmarked by primary election day and received by county clerks’ offices by June 27 — the Saturday after the election — to be counted. The state allowed widespread mail-in absentee voting because of the coronavirus pandemic. But in-person voting was also allowed, and many Kentuckians went to the polls Tuesday.
Early results showed McGrath, a retired Marine pilot backed by the party’s national establishment, leading Booker by about 4,000 votes in limited statewide returns. They were far ahead of the pack of other Democratic candidates.
“We feel confident that we are in a strong place to win,” (Booker) campaign spokesman Will Carle said. “We are overperforming in rural counties and, as early results from Louisville and Lexington show, we are winning in urban areas by large margins.”
Full story here. If the Booker campaign is correct, he will win if there is no election fraud.

As it is, the fact that they’re dragging this out probably means they know how it’s going to end up, and Cuck Schumer is trying to get a team of DNC thugs armed with shredders dispatched to KY to make sure they get the “results” they want.
Hopefully they fail in that effort. Because the only way to knock Yertle the Turtle off his throne is by giving him an ACTUAL opponent for the first (and last) time.

They will do everything they can to keep Booker from winning. Damn, I just wish Booker would have entered the race earlier because he would have rolled over the CIA democrat McGrath!
