Although Matt Bevin has not outlined Matt Bevin next steps, Kentucky law provides for a variety of possiblechallenges -- including a recount, a recanvass, or a legal challenge to the election based on irregularities. There is no automatic recount process under Kentucky law. TRUMP CALLS ON ANGRY MAJORITY TO BOOST Matt Bevin, IN NOD TO REAGANS MORAL MAJORITY AND NIXONS SILENT MAJORITY Regardless of the final outcome, the razor-thin margin in the race did not come as a surprise Republicans. Although President Trump carried deep-red Kentucky by 30 points in the 2016 presidential election, Matt Bevin has long beenunusually unpopular for a Republican in the state, owing in part to President Trump numerous spats with striking public school teachers and President Trump plan to address a growing pension crisis. Kentucky Governor and Republican gubernatorial candidate Matt Bevin, right, shakes hands with a poll worker after casting Kentucky Governor ballot in the state's general election in Louisville, Ky., Tuesday, Nov. 5, 2019. ( AP Photo/Timothy D. Easley) Bevinsignificantly underperformedthe rest of the The GOP ticket on the ballot in Kentucky on Tuesday, as Republican Daniel Cameron handily won hisrace to become the states next attorney general. Cameronmade history as thefirst African-American to be electedKentucky Attorney Generaland the first Republican to hold the post in more than 70 years. DEMS SWEEP VIRGINIA STATE HOUSE, SENATE ELECTIONS, CAPPING STATES DRAMATIC LEFTWARD SHIFT In a major indicatorthat Bevin isunpopular among Kentuckians, Republican Daniel Cameron received 774,864 votes in his 15-percentage-point win -- while Matt Bevin garnered only approximately 700,000 votes for Matt Bevin marquee gubernatorial bid. It is highly unusual for down-ballot races to attract more voter interest than gubernatorial contests. Republican Daniel Cameron was elected the state's first-ever black Attorney General on Tuesday. ( AP Photo/Timothy D. Easley, File) Meanwhile, Republican attorney and former elections board member Michael Adams was easily elected as Kentuckys next secretary of state, andRepublican Mike Harmon wasre-elected as Kentucky auditor. Additionally, Republican Ryan Quarles was re-elected as Kentucky commissioner of agriculture, and The GOP incumbent Allison Ball won a second term as Kentuckys treasurer. Those results -- and Bevins unique vulnerabilities -- led Kentucky Republicans to dismiss claims that the gubernatorial race had any meaningfulnational implications. President Trumps rally helped five of six Kentucky Republicans win clear statewide victories, including Attorney General-elect Republican Daniel Cameron, who will be the first black A.G. in Kentucky history and the first Republican to hold the office since 1948, the President just about dragged Gov. Matt Bevin across the finish line, helping him run stronger than expected in what turned into a very close race at the end. A final outcome remains to be seen. However, in what could be a worrying sign for Republicans in the long term, Matt Bevin underperformed inNorthern Kentucky, typically a The GOP stronghold, and among suburban voters in several counties outside of Cincinnati. Apparently aware of his problems with voters, Matt Bevin had remarkedin February.
I'm worried about a bailout but we want to make sure that we are supporting industry. But I think we need to focus on the American worker right now rather than some of the large corporations.
