LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) -- Incumbent Democrat Todd Hollenbach has been re-elected as Kentucky's treasurer thanks to strong support in his hometown of Louisville.

Republican opponent K.C. Crosbie kept the race close but Hollenbach's margin in Kentucky's largest city was too much for the Lexington councilwoman, who also had to overcome a third-party candidate who also attracted conservative voters.

With 99 percent of precincts reporting Tuesday, Hollenbach had 389,827, or 49 percent of the vote, to Crosbie's 370,724, or 46 percent. Libertarian Ken Moellman had 36,857, or 5 percent.

Hollenbach drew strong support in Jefferson County, where his father was judge-executive, collecting about 60 percent of the county's vote.
