Kentucky’s Thomas Massie Defeats Establishment-Backed Primary Challenger

Kentucky Republican Congressman Thomas Massie easily defeated a primary challenger on Tuesday, blowing out establishment-backed Todd McMurtry by an overwhelming margin of 88% to 12% with 73% of precincts in the Bluegrass State’s 4th Congressional District.

Massie declared victory at around 9:30PM local time, his considerable margin of victory perhaps sending a message to establishment elements that dislodging him would be far more difficult than they had imagined.
