Andy Beshear Democrat 615,653 50.2%
Matt Bevin* Republican 586,845 47.8
John Hicks Libertarian 24,070 2.0 1,226,568 votes, 84% reporting
do not concede until votes are retallied and voter rolls are verified.
did we lose Virginia?
I can hardly believe this
Idiot voters in kentucky want to be slaves.
It’s over. Some Louisville precincts out and nothing left for Bevin. He had a 30% approval and Trump pulled him to within 3% margin.
Not good .. the media will blame trump for the loss and this will only embolden the Dems for impeachment
Did SORASS give money to that STUPID LIBERTARIAN??
or it may get Trump to push harder
Why blame the President when it is obvious Libertarians split the vote?
I will repeat what I have said on other threads. Kentucky is not a republican state. It is a conservative state. Thats a big difference. In national elections, the people of Kentucky will vote for Republicans. In state elections, the overwhelmingly registered Democrat voters in Kentucky or not afraid of voting for reasonable founding Democrats. The Democrat is the son of a popular former governor. He talks with a southern accent. Meanwhile, the Republican is kind of a dope who is from New England, is not a very good fit for the state, and his managed to piss off So many people with his abrasive style, that his life quite frankly is not unexpected.
from what I have seen we lost VA...
How in the hell does a pro baby killing Rat win the Kentucky race when the same people voted for Trump by 30%.i dont believe it. It think its out and out fraud but republicans will sit on their asses and not say the obvious.
Secondly, it looks like the Republicans are winning all the other statewide races.
Maybe this IS just a case of a terrible candidate losing. We saw it with Roy Moore in 2017, didnt we?
I voted for Bevin however I totally predicted this would happen. it’s not Matt’s fault It’s the stupid moron voters in the state who apparently don’t mind that the state’s practically insolvent with pension crisis. They want to be broke while they’re going to get it now. Congratulations, idiots.
Oh, well...you can’t win them all.
Andy Beshear Democrat 658,102 49.8%
