Republican Caucus Held

Cruz wins Webster, Trump takes Kentucky

For the first time in history, voters in Webster County and across the Commonwealth turned out on a Saturday to vote, as the Kentucky Republican Party held its first ever Presidential Caucus. Although U.S. Senator Ted Cruz would claim Webster County, real estate mogul Donald Trump would go on to take the statewide vote.

“We had a lower turnout than expected,” said Brian Reynolds, chairman of the Webster County Republican Party. “We were anticipating around 500 voters.”

Of the 1,200 registered Republicans in Webster County, only 231 showed up at the Poole Fire Department on Saturday to cast their vote.
