Chandler-Barr race for Kentucky's 6th congressional district seat is tightening, analysts say

Two leading political scorekeepers say it's less likely that U.S. Rep. Ben Chandler, D-Versailles, will win the Nov. 6 election against Andy Barr. On Thursday, the Cook Political Report changed its rating for Central Kentucky's 6th Congressional District from "leans Democrat" to "toss up." The Rothenberg Political Report followed suit Friday, switching from "leans Democrat" to "toss up/tilt Democrat."
