Kentucky election: Democrat Beshear claims victory, Republican Bevin refuses to concede

Kentucky election: Democrat Beshear claims victory, Republican Bevin refuses to concede

The mixed results have been seen by commentators as a measure of Mr Trump's popularity amid moves to impeach him by the Democrats. The Kentucky State Board of Elections will meet on November 21 to certify the election results. Members from both parties are permitted to be present during the re-canvassing.

The results from Tuesday, Nov. 5, show Bevin trailed by around 5,000 votes, and he says there are "significant irregularities". One of those victories involved the election of Ghazala Hashmi who became the first Muslim woman elected to state Senate.

Here are a few takeaways from a night of balloting just under a year from the 2020 national election. Now that they're in control, Democrats can help determine congressional and legislative district lines in the future.

Yes, Democrats did win a US Senate seat in Alabama while Trump was president, a state that voted for him by an even larger margin than Kentucky did.

Trump tried to rally Republicans via Twitter but stayed out of Virginia, a state he lost in 2016.

Off-year state elections in the U.S. can be a mixed bag or harbingers of things to come. And if you lose, they are going to say Trump suffered the greatest defeat in the history of the world.

Trump himself threw his support behind Bevin in the campaign's closing days, holding a rally in Louisville on Monday - and warned that a Bevin loss could bolster the forces pushing for his impeachment.

Once in office, Bevin governed a lot like Trump, as well. "Her father has already been convicted of multiple-I think 10-different federal charges related to election fraud specific to her race", he added. "He'll dominate next year".

"The increase in Governors race was at least 15 points, and maybe 20!' he claimed".

Comer said Bevin's request for a recanvass of Tuesday's vote count is understandable.

Jay Glazer: ‘This Deion Sanders FSU Chatter Is Real’
Florida State fired former coach Willie Taggart Sunday after a 27-10 loss to state rival Miami on Saturday in Tallahassee, Fla. His No. 2 jersey is retired by the Seminoles, and he was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame in 2011.

With 99 percent of precincts reporting, Beshear was leading with 49.2 percent, or 709,671 votes, against Bevin's 48.8 percent, or 704,520 votes, according to NBC News. That's inside the margin that would trigger a recount in most states, and it's the policy of The Associated Press not to call races that could go to a recount.

The results raised the question of why the president embraced an unpopular governor so late in the campaign.

Previous year in Kentucky, math teacher R. Travis Brenda narrowly upset Jonathan Shell, then state House majority floor leader, despite Shell having the endorsement of U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.). Most immediately, it underscored GOP worries about a shifting electoral playing field ahead of 2020.

"It means we're bleeding in suburban areas, again", said Sarah Chamberlain, president of the Republican Main Street Partnership, an organization of centrist GOP lawmakers.

Amy McGrath, who announced a run in June, is considered a strong contender, but any fight against McConnell will be an uphill battle because he will be, as always, well-funded. "I see those as really natural cycles that you see in certain state legislatures".

It's hard to draw sweeping conclusions from state elections, each with their own unique quirks and personalities. As the party's presidential candidates debate ambitious, big-ticket items such as "Medicare for All", moderates urged caution.

Educators in Kentucky - Republicans and Democrats - harnessed the momentum of those walkouts to try to propel Beshear to the governor's office, with teacher volunteers proving key to the campaign's get-out-the-vote effort, said David Turner, spokesman for the Democratic Governors Association. We don't want to delegitimize his victory. He said he infected his nine children with chickenpox rather than having them vaccinated.

In Kentucky, 73-year-old Michael Jennings voted straight Democratic.

During Trump's first term as president, he has endorsed multiple candidates who have won elections, and others who have lost their elections.

The election results underscore the challenge Republicans in swing areas face when Trump seeks re-election in 2020, including US senators Cory Gardner of Colorado, Susan Collins of Maine, Thom Tillis of North Carolina and Martha McSally of Arizona: embrace Trump and risk alienating suburban voters, especially women, or keep your distance and risk losing Trump diehards.
