Kentucky

6 seats: 5R, 1D     R 53

Despite clear strength statewide, Democrats risked being swept in Kentucky's 1998 federal elections. Ken Lucas will carry the Democratic banner in 2000, but given his Republican-leaning district, he must be considered very vulnerable. Anne Northup also continues to be rated as vulnerable in her Democratic-leaning district, although the district has been been trending Republican.
