    Hoping we have a full sweep.

    I do have one random question

    Is the Todd Hollenbach running right now the same one that lost a primary to Former Governor Julian Carroll in 1975?

    I was reading this


    Governor Wendell Ford's allies encouraged Carroll to run for the U.S. Senate in 1974, but Carroll had already set his sights on the governorship. Instead, Ford ran for and won the Senate seat, and Carroll succeeded him as governor. In 1975, he sought a full term in office and won the Democratic gubernatorial nomination in a four-way primary against Todd Hollenbach, Mary Louise Foust, and Robert McCreary Johnson.

      is right. Hollenbach Jr. would have to been 15 years old then.
