US Reps. Rogers, Davis re-elected to Congress

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Republican U.S. Reps. Hal Rogers and Geoff Davis have easily won re-election in their respective districts in eastern and northern Kentucky.

Rogers has defeated independent Jim Holbert in the 5th District. Davis has beaten Democrat and Oldham County physician Michael Kelley.

The victories give Davis his third term and Rogers his 15th. Meanwhile two state senators have wrapped up their campaigns for Kentucky's 2nd Congressional District. Republican Brett Guthrie of Bowling Green and Democrat David Boswell of Owensboro are vying for the seat left open by Ron Lewis, who is retiring.

In Louisville, a rematch of Republican Anne Northup and Democratic Congressman John Yarmuth is a role-reversal of their contest in 2006, when the newcomer Yarmuth narrowly defeated five-term incumbent Northup. Two other incumbents faced challengers in congressional elections.
