Incumbent Republican Mitch McConnell has maintained his position as U.S. Senator Tuesday by beating out his Democratic opponent Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes.
The race was called shortly after the polls closed.
In Shelby County, McConnell dominated Grimes 60.86 percent to 36.47 percent, beating her by nearly 4,000 votes.
A posting on Mitch McConnell’s Facebook page thanked voters for their support, stating, “Thanks to supporters like you, we won a historic victory for Kentucky and America tonight.”
