FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) -- U.S. Rep. Ben Chandler has been endorsed for re-election by the state's two largest daily newspapers.

The Courier-Journal and the Lexington Herald-Leader weighed in on the race last week, saying Chandler is a better choice than Republican challenger Andy Barr.

Chandler and Barr are in a tight race for the 6th District congressional seat. Their race is a rematch from two years ago. Chandler won that one by fewer than 700 votes.

The Herald-Leader said Chandler's record "is a profile of independence" and that he "defends the shrinking middle ground" in a government the newspaper said has been "poisoned by partisanship."

The Courier-Journal said Chandler "best represents the interest of Kentuckians."
