This week in Kentucky politics, Mitch McConnell and Amy McGrath crossed the state making their final pitches during the last week of voting. 

Kentucky’s chief election officer says the state will post what it has of voting totals on Election Night, meaning we might know the results of some races. And most of the state legislature is up for reelection this year as well, but it will likely still be controlled by Republicans. Jonese Franklin from member station WFPL talked to capitol reporter Ryland Barton for this week’s edition of Kentucky Politics Distilled.

Ryland Barton is the Managing Editor for Collaboratives for Kentucky Public Radio, a group of public radio stations including WKMS, WFPL in Louisville, WEKU in Richmond and WKYU in Bowling Green. A native of Lexington, Ryland most recently served as the Capitol Reporter for Kentucky Public Radio. He has covered politics and state government for NPR member stations KWBU in Waco and KUT in Austin.
