With most of the state's polling places reporting, there will likely be no upsets in Kentucky's primary. However, this comes without results from the commonwealth's two largest counties — Jefferson and Fayette — home to Louisville and Lexington. The two counties announced Tuesday that no unofficial results will be released until June 30.

Todd McMurtry, the Northern Kentucky lawyer famous for being part of the legal team representing a Covington Catholic High School student in suits against CNN and The Washington Post, hopes to unseat Rep. Thomas Massie in the state's June 23 Republican primary. McMurtry has attacked Massie over his apparent lack of loyalty to the president and the Republican Party.

Northern Kentucky Congressman Thomas Massie became the focus of widespread national scorn, even from within his own Republican Party, all the way to the White House, when he tried to force every member of the U.S. House to return to Washington, D.C. to vote in person on the first coronavirus relief package. President Trump took aim at the four-term Congressman on Twitter.

Four southwest Ohio, eastern Indiana and northern Kentucky U.S. House members voted "no" late Tuesday night on the bill to avert the nation falling over the "fiscal cliff."

Rep. Steve Chabot, R-Westwood; Rep. Jean Schmidt, R-Miami Township; Rep. Thomas Massie, R-Lewis County; and Rep. Mike Pence, R-Columbus, Ind. bucked the party leadership on the bill that would raise the income tax rate for individuals making over $450,000 a year and extended unemployment benefits for the long-term unemployed by one year.
