Sixth District GOP Congressman Andy Barr held off a challenge by first time candidate Amy McGrath, a retired Marine fighter pilot. The three-term U.S. Representative admits divisiveness in politics needs attention.
“We are a people, who rose from the rugged pioneer spirit which built this country. And there is no reason why Kentuckians can't lead a political and spiritual renewal to go along with our nation’s economic revival,” Barr said.
Barr thanked McGrath for stiff competition, saying it made him a better leader and better Congressman. For her part, McGrath promised to remain an active voice in Kentucky.
