Databook: Status quo for Ky’s US House

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
