Voters to head to the polls for Kentucky's primary elections

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - Voters from all over Kentucky will head to their polling places today to cast their ballot in Kentucky's primary elections.

In Lexington, many people are keeping a close eye on the mayoral race. Incumbent Jim Gray is running against former police chief Anthany Beatty and college professor Danny Mayer. One of those candidates will be eliminated and the two with the most votes will move on to the general election in November.

In addition, Senate minority leader Mitch McConnell is set to defend his Senate seat against Tea Party favorite Matt Bevin, and three others. All the contenders campaigned across Kentucky on Monday. The winner will likely face Democratic challenger Alison Lundergan Grimes in the fall. She is the front runner in Tuesday's Democratic primary.
