Frankfort, Ky.—KDP Chair Colmon Elridge released the following statement on tonight’s Democratic primary results. 

“Congratulations to tonight’s primary winners who are leading the charge in fighting for a better Kentucky. To our general election candidates, and to those who came up short this evening, we are a better Commonwealth because you have lifted your hands in service. Running for office takes serious determination and we appreciate your commitment to public service. 

“KDP has fantastic candidates this cycle — up and down the entire ballot — who will build on the historic economic investments made under the Beshear-Coleman Administration, defend public schools, and level the playing field for Kentucky’s working families. With Kentucky Republicans leaving Kentucky’s children, public schools, women, and families behind, our Democratic candidates are in the fight to move our Commonwealth forward — together. 

“With so much at stake in 2024, KDP is committed to providing the support our candidates need to win this November, and to help lead Kentucky to a brighter future.”
