So will Booker make up the 8-10% gap he'll need in Fayette and Jefferson counties?

Or are ya'll about ready to call it for McGrath?

Either way we won't know for sure until the end of the week, or later.

1. An armchair QB analyst already called it for Booker in another thread

Whose right?

7. I'm gonna go with whatever Wasserman says

But he'll stay quiet until at least some of jefferson county reports, I'm sure.

2. Despite the percentage

Itís not that many votes to make up. No idea what will happen, but itís not over. I did hear that Bookerís internal polling had them winning Jefferson County about 80-20%

5. yeah in that case itll be called when the first votes are reported in those counties

Jefferson and fayette make up around half of all the votes, no?

Only 62% of precincts reporting.

10. I hope McGrath wins...while I have my doubts that McConnell will lost no matter who we nominate...

we don't know what will be happening in November...and if things get more dire as I believe they will, I think McGrath has a better chance to win over red or purple voters.

11. Well if we have to lose either way, mise well go with the progressive

Get the ideas out there. But I'm not convinced Booker will lose.

12. :) You guess for both of us then, I'm clueless.

I was thrilled that McGrath briefly polled slightly above McConnell. But then George Floyd was murdered, the political cards were tossed in the air in a lot of races, and in this one a black man who'd previously been mostly ignored became the man to beat. Could the same little zeitgeist continue to lift him through November 3 if he won now? Absolutely no idea.
