FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) — Incumbents will compete against each other in primaries for three Kentucky House seats this year. Candidate lineups for federal and state offices were finalized Tuesday.
That’s unless new redistricting maps are blocked in court. Secretary of State Michael Adams’ office said nearly 700 candidates are running for seats in Congress and the legislature and for judgeships.
The candidate filing deadline was pushed back to give Kentuckians time to decide whether to run in new districts.
New state House boundaries set up primary contests among two sets of Republican incumbents placed in the same districts and one set of Democratic representatives.
