If Kentucky's 2014 elections were up to the students of Calloway County High School, Mitch McConnell would win re-election in the US Senate, Jack Rose would be Murray's next mayor and the county would have a new Parks Tax. 

CCHS held a mock election yesterday for local, state and national seats before the November 4th mid-terms. 

Political science teacher Marshall Ward says the school started administering the exercise every election cycle since 2000 as a way of invigorating young people to vote.

James Young is vice-chair of the statewide Young Republicans group. And he says his members are fanning out statewide to become the de facto campaign staff in state House races.
