Two new polls offer the latest numbers on Kentucky's senate race and next year's race for the Governor's mansion.
Public Policy Polling found Kentucky incumbent senator Mitch McConnell at 44%, with 40% for Democrat Alison Lundergan Grimes and 7% for Libertarian David Patterson. The poll also showed that McConnell has a high negative image as well. Among the undecided voters, McConnell has just a 10% approval rating to 66% of voters who disapprove of him.
Looking ahead to next year's race for Governor, Public Policy Polling finds a wide open race.
Republicans are closely split on whom they'd like to see as their candidate with 25% for Matt Bevin, 20% for James Comer, 18% for Hal Heiner and 11% for Cathy Bailey. In a head to head matchup, Heiner leads Comer by 6%.
Democrat Jack Conway leads all of the Republican candidates in potential general election matchups.
