      Former Marine combat pilot Amy McGrath won the Democratic Senate primary in Kentucky on Tuesday, overcoming an unexpectedly fierce challenge from progressive state Rep. Charles Booker.

      McGrath was declared the winner after initial results from the June 23 primary were too close to call, hinging the final outcome on mailed-in ballots that have flooded in amid the coronavirus pandemic. She was leading Booker by 45 percent to 43 percent as of midday Tuesday.

      McGrath’s victory came a week after the primary due to the high volume of absentee ballots that ticked in after the June 23 election. Some counties even waited until after they had counted outstanding mail-in ballots to report any results at all.

      As vote counts were updated throughout the week, the results fluctuated wildly, at times showing Booker in the lead. He ultimately won the state’s urban centers in Louisville and Lexington by large margins, but McGrath made up ground in Kentucky’s more rural areas. Those votes helped carry her across the finish line Tuesday.

      But no good little Democrat will ever challenge such things. They still follow Al Gore’s and John Kerry’s splendid examples of capitulation.

        And still only beat him by a 1% margin.

      I forgot about the crooked voting machines.

      They’ll never convince me that this lousy Tory won on the legit.

      But the same voting machines that rigged it for her will also rig it for Bitch McConnell.

      He tried to give PA Katie McGinty, and we got Pat Toomey instead.

      Air quotes because it seems as suspicious as snowfall in Hell after recent polls showing the results going entirely the other way.

      Even if somebody was delusional enough to believe that Joe Biden could get elected President and somehow turn around the damage done by the Orange Imbecile, he wouldn’t get far if the Republicans still control the Senate. And the outcomes of KY & CO pretty much guarantee that they will.

      Democrats might well have significant gains in the House. But that just means you might actually get a few good bills written… which then immediately die when they get shipped off to the Senate.

        Just one more avoidable loss to add to the 1000 or so that have happened since 2008.

      after the Florida State Supreme Court had ruled in his favor. The USSC ruled against him, 5-4. What could he do after that? No one in the Senate stood up for him.
