LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - 6th Congressional District Democratic nominee Amy McGrath was able to win almost every county in the district to secure her party's nomination.
McGrath was able to win every single county except for Fayette County, which is Lexington Mayor Jim Gray's home base. Despite Fayette County's large population, Gray's advantage was not enough to compensate for his defeats in other counties.
The Democratic nominee was able to make up the 4,664 vote deficit in Fayette County with solid wins in other counties with larger populations including Franklin, Madison, Montgomery, and Scott counties.
McGrath will take on Republican incumbent Congressman Andy Barr in the general election.
