Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer and Congressman John Yarmuth both won their re-election campaigns by wide margins on Tuesday, as the Democratic incumbents were able to win over 60 percent of the vote.

Rep. Yarmuth will now serve his seventh term in Kentucky’s Third District that includes most of Louisville, defeating his Republican challenger Vicki Yates Brown Glisson with 62 percent of the vote with nearly all precincts reporting.

Mayor Fischer defeated his Republican Councilwoman Angela Leet by picking up 61 percent of the vote, and will now serve his third four-year term leading the largest city in Kentucky.

This story will be updated.
