    Various take aways include;

    • This was a pretty high turnout for a Democratic Primary vote.

    • Vote by mail nationwide is going to be rough since the vote on this was a week ago, and people are only willing to call this now.

        Common sense would say "no" McGrath does not take a more progressive stance but I'm sure her team have a better pulse on what will work in Kentucky then either of us.
