For more information about the change in election format, see the wikipedia entry on the United States Senate election in Kentucky, 2016. The change from a primary to a caucus was made primarily to allow Senator Rand Paul to run for President while remaining in the race for his Senate seat, because Kentucky state law prohibits a candidate from appearing on the ballot twice in general or primary elections. Paul has since dropped out of the 2016 Presidential race.
