LIVE: Kentucky 2023 primary election results
Kentucky is one of the few states in the nation with a race for governor this year.
A crowd of Republicans lined up to challenge incumbent Democratic Gov. Andy Beshear, who easily won the nomination, but Attorney General Daniel Cameron ultimately prevailed.
Polls closed at 6:00 pm local time in this year's primary races, which had some of the lowest turnout in recent decades.
Shortly after 7:10 ET, the Associated Press called the GOP primary in favor of Cameron, who was endorsed by former President Donald Trump and enjoyed leading polling numbers throughout the nominating contest.
Republican Secretary of State Michael Adams, who is fending off challengers from his own party, predicted turnout could be as low as 10%. But rain across much of the state may have even further suppressed voter participation.
