3:45 p.m.

Republicans in Kentucky’s 1st Congressional District have selected three delegates to the Republican National Convention who say they are not committed to a candidate.

Richard Grana, George Barnett and Brenda Barnett were all elected delegates during the 1st Congressional District Republican Convention on Saturday. All told The Associated Press they have not decided who they would support should the nominating process at the national convention reach a second ballot. On the first ballot, Kentucky’s delegation would have to vote according to the results of last month’s presidential caucus.

Republicans have chosen 12 of the state’s 46 delegates so far. Three congressional districts will select nine more delegates next week. The state convention will select the final 25 delegates on April 23.


12:30 p.m.

Republicans in Kentucky’s 6th congressional district have elected a congressman, a state senator and a state party official as delegates to the Republican National Convention.

Delegates at the 6th District Republican convention chose U.S. Rep. Andy Barr, state Sen. Ralph Alvarado and Republican Party of Kentucky Treasurer Cathy Bell as delegates.

Kentucky delegates’ support on the first ballot at the convention will be based on results from last month’s presidential caucus. If no presidential candidate has enough delegates to secure the nomination, Kentucky’s delegates would be free to support anyone.

If that happens, Barr, Alvarado and Bell said they have not decided who they would support.

Kentucky has 46 delegates to the Republican convention.
