Hollenbach wins close race for Ky. treasurer

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Incumbent Democrat Todd Hollenbach has
been re-elected as Kentucky's treasurer thanks to strong support in
his hometown of Louisville.

Republican opponent K.C. Crosbie kept the race close but
Hollenbach's margin in Kentucky's largest city was too much for the
Lexington councilwoman, who also had to overcome a third-party
candidate who also attracted conservative voters.

With 99 percent of precincts reporting Tuesday, Hollenbach had
389,827, or 49 percent of the vote, to Crosbie's 370,724, or 46
percent. Libertarian Ken Moellman had 36,857, or 5 percent.

Hollenbach drew strong support in Jefferson County, where his
father was judge-executive, collecting about 60 percent of the
county's vote.
