Kentucky Secretary of State Trey Grayson is now in possession of vote totals in the 6th District U.S. House race, as certified by local county clerks, but the numbers still must go before the State Board of Elections.
In the seven-year history of the Louisville Metro Council, no elected incumbent has ever lost a bid for re-election. This year, there are nine contested races, seven of which are between elected incumbents and challengers.
The council will nominate and vote on a successor Wednesday. Majority caucus spokesperson Tony Hyatt says councilmembers will likely talk after the interviews and narrow down the list of candidates to two or three nominees.
