Democrat Andy Beshear just unseated Kentuckys Trump-loving governor
Its a huge win for Democrats in a very conservative state. Trump won
the state by a whopping 30 points in 2016.
Trump told thousand of supporters ahead of Tuesday's election. "If you
win, they are going to make it like, ho hum. And if you lose, they are
going to say Trump suffered the greatest defeat in the history of the
world. You can't let that happen to me!"
Well, donnie, it happened to you!
A faint ray of hope. Maybe bad news for Putin's Mitch.
Has the Republican incumbent conceded?
I thought there was a very narrow margin and some muttering about
"irregularities" - which might be a foretaste of Trump's response in 2020.
There will be a "re-canvas" a week from tomorrow (Thursday). This is
to see that all of the tallies were recorded correctly. If they were
not, then there is a full-scale re-count.
If Republicans should uncover any corruption in the election, the
Bevin campaign could also make a petition to contest the results
provided there's a convincing reason.
Kentucky's Secretary of State let something slip (maybe) this morning
when he mentioned "checking for transpositions". Beshear presently
has an edge of just over 5,000 votes. If a corrupt county official
says, "Oops, this tally for Bevin was 9,298, but it was recorded as
2,998", there are more than enough votes to change the outcome of the
You never know in this corrupt culture.
