Only odd numbered members of the Kentucky Senate ran this year. Even numbered years run in 2010.

8 GOP members – 4 unopposed / 1 open seat (no party change)
10 Dem members – 4 unopposed / 1 open seat (no party change)
 
Incumbents are coming back to the Senate without exception. The only members who aren't coming back are those who moved on. In the 9th Senate District, Sen. Richie Sanders retired.  In Senate District 13, Senator Ernesto Scorsone will now be Fayette Circuit Judge Ernesto Scorsone. In both cases the incumbent's party held on to the seat.

The closest race by far was in the 23rd Senate District where Republican Sen. Jack Westwood narrowly defeated Democratic challenger Kathy Groob by one percentage point.

The major predictor of success at the polls? Incumbency, incumbency, incumbency.
