Ky. congressional matchups set for Nov. election

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - Republican Andy Barr has earned the right
to a rematch against Democratic U.S. Rep. Ben Chandler in this
fall's general election by besting his GOP opponents in Tuesday's
6th District primary.

Barr lost a squeaker to Chandler two years ago and has been
planning the sequel ever since. He swamped fellow Republicans
Patrick Kelly and Curtis Kenimer on Tuesday.

In other fall congressional races, Republican incumbent Ed
Whitfield will face Democrat Charles Hatchett in the 1st District.
Republican incumbent Brett Guthrie will face Democrat David Lynn
Williams in the 2nd. Democratic incumbent John Yarmuth will face
Republican Brooks Wicker in the 3rd. Republican nominee Thomas
Massie will face Democrat Bill Adkins in the 4th. And Republican
incumbent Hal Rogers will face Democrat Kenneth Stepp in the 5th.
