Cook Political Report updated its “U.S. House District Databook,” and barring any major problems, it looks like Kentucky’s congressional delegation will remain in current party control.
Cook’s analysis contains a Partisan Voter Index for each congressional district in the nation based on how voters in a district voted for president compared with the nation as a whole. In Kentucky’s House District 1, Cook assigned a PVI of R+23. This means the district voted 23 points more Republican than the nation as a whole.
The resource is designed to show which districts are solid and which might swing.
The PVIs of Kentucky’s other House districts and the office-holders are:
- District 2: U.S. Rep. Brett Guthrie, R-Bowling Green – PVI = R+19
- District 3: U.S. Rep. John Yarmuth, D-Louisville – PVI = D+6
- District 4: U.S. Rep. Thomas Massie, R-Louisville – PVI = R+18
- District 5: U.S. Rep. Hal Rogers, R-Somerset – PVI = R+31
- District 6: U.S. Rep. Andy Barr, R-Lexington – PVI = R+9
