LOUISVILLE, Kentucky-U.S. Sen Rand Paul will face  former state Rep. Charles Booker of Louisville in the general election after initial results showed Paul, the Republican incumbent, and Booker, who is a Black Democrat, both  defeating little-known challengers during Kentucky’s primary elections on Tuesday.

A former state representative who succeeded Darryl Owens into office and the first Black Democratic candidate to be nominated for statewide election in Kentucky history, Booker is making his second run for the U.S. Senate after running in 2020 and losing the Democratic nomination to retired Marine fighter pilot Amy McGrath, who went on to lose the general election to Republican Mitch McConnell.
