2018 mid-term wrap-up for Kentucky

No one realistically thought Kentucky House Republicans — who hold 63 of the 100 seats — would lose their majority. But Democrats were hoping to make a dent in the GOP supermajority.

By the end of Election Day, the state GOP had lost only two seats.
That means Republicans will still have the power to pass constitutional amendments or —in short sessions held in odd-numbered years like 2019 — tax bills.

The Senate GOP also saw its ranks increase by at least one seat, giving them 28-10 majority in the upper chamber.

Pro-life bills are assured of getting respectable hearings for the next two years in our state legislature.

Thanks be to God.
