How did Bevin let Kentucky slip away? (If he did)

Why Democrat state election gains should concern Trump

Democrats have strong night in U.S. elections

More than half of Kentucky's 120 counties saw over 40% of all registered voters cast ballots in Tuesday's election, including large counties like Jefferson (45%) and Fayette (47%).

Most Kentucky Republican candidates were victorious on Tuesday, including thoe running for secretary of state, attorney general, auditor, treasurer and agriculture commissioner.

With all the votes counted Mr Bevin was on 48.8 per cent of the vote compared to his Democratic rival Andy Beshear, who was on 49.2 per cent. In fact, impeachment was more of a talking point on the Bevin campaign than anything he did as governor. "Great going Daniel, proud of you!"

"Kentuckians showed up to defend their reproductive freedom this election, reaffirming that the majority of people here want increased access to reproductive care, including abortion", Wieder said in a statement to CBS News on Tuesday.

Kentucky Freedom Fund, a PAC affiliated with the Republican Attorneys General Association, spent the most of any group in the race on television ads, launching attacks on Stumbo's character, calling him a "despicable deadbeat" and referring to him as "Greg SCUMBO".

Once in office, Bevin governed a lot like Trump, as well.

Moreover, on Saturday, the German star registered a hattrick of goals and assists against Mainz in a contest that Leipzig won 8-0. The report adds that United have sent scouts to watch him in every game that he has played for Leipzig this season.


Just a day before the election, President Donald Trump told a rally crowd in Kentucky that a Bevin loss would "send a really bad message".

The Morning Joe co-anchor also called Trump's brand of Republicanism "toxic" on social media as he drew attention to the loss of votes in the Cincinnati suburbs in the Kentucky gubernatorial election.

Democrats have pledged that when they take power, they will pass an agenda that Republicans have blocked for years, including stricter gun laws, a higher minimum wage and ratification of the Equal Rights Amendment, making Virginia the final state needed for possible passage of the gender equality measure.

President Trump had campaigned strongly for Bevin's reelection, giving a speech at the rally on Monday that lasted over an hour. "The governor was a Ben Carson supporter in the 2016 primary".

Trump's 2020 campaign manager tried to find a positive frame for the results in a state Trump won by 30 percentage points in 2016. "You can't let that happen to me, and you can't let that happen to your incredible state".

But it's unclear whether off-year state elections can predict national sentiment when the president isn't on the ballot, so any political damage to Trump is likely to be short term.

The airport is still operating but all inbound and outbound flights are delayed and some have been postponed indefinitely. The Grip 3 was established at about 7:40 p.m., with authorities unified under a single incident commander.


Still, while the election results may ease Democrats' fears about their impeachment efforts backfiring politically, Republicans are unlikely to alter their calculations about sticking with the president.

Some analysts said candidates who forge their own identities while not repudiating Trump - a tricky balance - are in the best position to win in swing states, where a big rally by the president may not matter as much.

Off-year state elections in the USA can be a mixed bag or harbingers of things to come.

On Tuesday the party finished the job, winning both chambers of the state's legislature and delivering the party unified control of the state government for the first time since 1993.

Trump's not done campaigning this year.
