Republican primary quietly approaches in Kentucky

LONDON, Ky. (AP) - Kentucky voters have watched from the sidelines as the Republican presidential primaries unfolded in other states. When they finally get their say a little more than a month from now, it may not matter.

Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney appears on course to collect the 1,144 delegates he needs to wrap up the Republican nomination, despite the best efforts of top challenger Rick Santorum who is facing growing pressure to drop out of the race.

The candidates still have primaries in 11 other states, including Pennsylvania, New York and Indiana, before Kentucky voters go to the polls on May 22.

Kentucky GOP Chairman Steve Robertson says the outcome of those primaries will determine whether the voices of his state's 1.1 million Republicans will matter.
