Gov. Andy Beshear on Monday pushed back May’s primary elections until late June, giving the government more time to deal with the coronavirus pandemic.
The elections include the presidential race, U.S. Senate, six campaigns for U.S. House of Representatives, half of the seats in the Kentucky Senate, every seat in the Kentucky House of Representatives, as well as judicial and local elections.
“This is a necessary step,” Beshear said. “We don’t want people to create gatherings where the coronavirus can spread,”
