Yarmuth Tops Northup in Rematch

Anne Northup (R), the five-term Congresswoman who was swept from office in the anti-Republican wave of 2006, was unsuccessful in her comeback attempt this year against Rep. John Yarmuth (D) in Kentucky’s 3rd district.

With 75 percent of the precincts reporting in the Louisville-based district, Yarmuth is well on his way to securing his second term with 58 percent to Northup’s 42 percent.

Yarmuth and national Democratic officials did much to tie Northup to President Bush in his successful 2006 campaign and the same strategy served them well again in this year’s campaign.
