Tim Kaine Criticizes Attempts to Downplay Result of Kentucky Governor Race

Within the intervening time, Beshear turned his focal level in direction of a probable transition from convey Prison reputable Normal to the Governor's space of labor and said he became as soon as confident in the election Tuesday night.

One risk for the party is that if they choose a candidate who is considered too far left they will lose the so-called "purple" democrats, who may simply not vote in the presidential election.

The unofficial voting tally shows Beshear ahead by just over 5,000 votes.

The Associated Press has not declared a victor in Tuesday's race, in keeping with its policy not to call races that could go to a recount.

"We want the process to be followed, and there is a process", he said.

On Wednesday afternoon, Bevin formally requested a recanvass.

More than 1,000 Kentucky teachers broke the state's labor laws when they called in sick to participate in #RedforEd promoted protests over their pension funds at the state capitol this spring, Kentucky's Secretary of Labor said on Friday. A recanvass is a check of the vote count to ensure the results were added correctly. "This is a close, close race", Bevin reportedly said and claimed there were "irregularities" in the election. The results never flipped a race's outcome. It's unclear if Tuesday night's results will affect the primary, but they will give a boost to candidates who are running on a more centrist platform. In the past three off-off year elections in Kentucky for governor (2007, 2011, 2015) turnout was hovering around 30 percent.

Beshear, son of former Kentucky Governor Steve Beshear who served from 2007 to 2015, has focused his campaign on bread-and-butter issues and his ability to work with Trump. It may not say a whole lot about who will win in an actual swing state like Wisconsin, either.

He promised a quick follow-through on some key campaign pledges.

Mr Bevin, 52, has reportedly said he will not concede.

Kentucky has no mandatory recount law. "The increase in Governors race was at least 15 points, and maybe 20!" A recanvass confirmed that margin.

As of last month, the Democratic candidates in Virginia collectively outraised the Republican candidates by 50%, or $10 million.

In These Times has been selected to participate in NewsMatch-the largest grassroots fundraising campaign for nonprofit news organizations.

While Bevin wasn't conceding, some prominent Kentucky Republicans acknowledged that Beshear won.

Right now, Governor Matt Bevin trails his challenger and presumptive Governor-elect Andy Beshear.

In the history of USA elections, if the candidate is about 10 or more points behind the opponent there might be unique problems and undoubtedly Bevin has it. Bevin tried to unify the Kentucky voters specially during his campaign rally where President Trump endorsed him.

But what made Bevin unpopular - his brash personality, combative approach and embrace of controversy - are the same traits that make Trump an unpopular incumbent.

When Kentucky teachers staged a series of walkouts in February and March, shutting down school districts across the state, their message was clear: Stop the attacks on workers and fund public education.

Bevin focused on national issues in the race, touting himself as stridently anti-abortion and tough on illegal immigrants, with his ads showing menacing-looking gang members pouring over US borders.

Republicans did have a good night in MS, keeping an open-seat race in their column as Lt. Gov. Tate Reeves defeated Democratic Attorney General Jim Hood for governor.

Bevin's effort to cut Medicaid was likely a problem for him with some portion of Kentucky's rural voters, which may have been the difference in an extremely tight race. But the dip at the top of the ticket still offered another example in the Trump era of suburban voters' willingness to abandon established Republican loyalties - even with the president making a personal appeal on behalf of a GOP standard-bearer.

Here are a few takeaways from a night of balloting just under a year from the 2020 national election. Most Democratic Party successes have been happening in the suburbs and the North Country just isn't a region known for big suburbs.
