The Democratic Party's more establishment wing is victorious in a high-profile Kentucky Senate primary despite a late surge from a rising progressive lawmaker.
Retired Marine fighter pilot Amy McGrath has beaten state Rep. Charles Booker in the state's Democratic U.S. Senate contest, The Associated Press projects.
The call came Tuesday, a week after the primary, as absentee ballots were counted.
McGrath will now face Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, who easily won the Republican primary.
