Dem's likely win the Governor's seat in KY.
« on: November 06, 2019, 08:44:08 AM »
At first I was thinking, "WTH". Kentucky is a RED state so how could this have happened. Democrats apparently see this as a sign that they will beat McConnell and help defeat Trump in 2020. Well, not so fast. Dem's are reading a little to far into the situation. After reading up on what's been going on it appears that Bevin, the GOP incumbent, is not a very popular feller among the Republican's in KY. He's pissed a lot of Republican voters off. While Bevin may have lost it appears that KY has their first black Republican AG and it also appears that Republican's handily won all other seats up for grabs.

It appears to me that Bevin has a little too much pride and shouldn't have run for re-election as a wildly unpopular governor among his own party. His pride will likely now allow the enemy to sit in the governor's mansion. But, on the bright side the state's House and Senate are Republican's so it's not like the enemy will be able to push through any of his anti-American lunatic socialist agenda.

Bevin is like Trump he came in he tried to change the status quo and clean up government.

People don't like change especially when it comes to government because flunkies sucking off that tit might lose out.

But it ain't over yet the fat lady hasn't sung there might be some hanging chads out there.  :D

Thanks Vol.  I did not understand the inner workings of Kentucky, so I was concerned.  Bevin must be some kind of jackass to turn people against him like that.  Should be a shoe-in for a Republican.

The race has not been called yet but you are correct that Blevins was not a popular governor with either party.
His popularity was in the mid 30's about two months ago and Trump's appearance in Lexington Monday night apparently made it a tighter race than it should have been.
Late last night ABC News changed their call from a Democrat win to a "too close to call" race.
I would guess there will be a recount.

Bevins is the only Republican running who didn't win.
Apparently, Republicans ran the table except for Bevins, who apparently went out of his way to alienate as many people as possible....

Kentucky also elected their first black Attorney General.  He's a Republican - the first Republican to hold that position in 70 years.

Cameron, a relative newcomer in politics, defeated Democrat Greg Stumbo, a political heavyweight in Kentucky who was attorney general from 2003 to 2007 and as speaker of the General Assembly from 2009 to 2017.

Cameron won by a margin of 57.7% to Stumbo’s 42.3%

President Trump endorsed Cameron at his rally in the state on Monday and said “a star is born” when he brought him up to the stage.

“Thank you to the people of Kentucky. It’s a great honor to be your next Attorney General and I look forward to hitting the ground running,” Cameron wrote on Twitter after the Tuesday victory.

Exactly. KY is a Republican stronghold. Bevin must be really hated in order for his Demrat opponent to be within sight. KY for a Republican is almost a guaranteed win. To screw that up takes a really special feller.

There were several state elections around the nation on Tuesday. The results were a mixed bag, which didn’t stop certain media outlets from painting it as a no-good, very bad, terrible day for President Trump.

In fact, the only people who got really bad news were longtime Virginia residents who’ve watched with alarm over many years as more and more government trough-feeders moved in and started shifting their state left. That process was completed Tuesday when the Democrats took control of both houses of the legislature for the first time in 26 years. That could mean there will not be any brakes on Democratic Gov. Ralph Northam, most famous for favoring infanticide, gun confiscation and wearing blackface makeup but getting protected anyway by Democrats who would destroy a Republican’s career simply for using the “wrong” pronoun.

One has to wonder why anyone would want their state to be entirely in the hands of Democrats. Did Virginia voters look at Californians sitting in the dark with no electricity; paying the highest taxes and gas prices in America; surrounded by homeless people, illegal immigrant gang members, needles, feces and typhus; and say, “I want my state to be run like THAT!”? Were they really impressed by all the great things the Democrats have done for America since taking power in the US House last January? Or do they just have a death wish?

Sadly for the good people of Virginia, they were overwhelmed by changing demographics, campaigning by liberal outsiders such as Barack Obama and Hollywood celebrities, and millions of dollars poured into Democratic coffers by outside sources, chief among them leftist billionaires such as George Soros and Mike Bloomberg (I thought Democrats believed that interfering in other people’s elections was a high crime, and that we must stop “billionaires from buying elections”...oh, wait, these are THEIR billionaires...)

he other election being painted as a disaster for Trump and a harbinger of a “blue wave” that will take out Mitch McConnell in 2020 is the Governor’s race in Kentucky, where incumbent Republican Matt Bevin seemingly lost to Democrat Andy Beshear. But with only 5,333 votes out of 1.4 million cast separating them, Bevin is refusing to concede, citing voting irregularities, and considering a legal challenge that could keep the final results unknown for weeks. (Cue howls of outrage from the same liberal commentators who continue to insist that Stacey Abrams is really the rightful governor of Georgia.) 

This again illustrates something I’ve written about for years: the folly of trying to read too many national trends into local elections. Bevin’s problem wasn’t that Kentucky voters are turning on Trump and Republicans. He was battling a number of headwinds, from personal unpopularity to strong opposition by teachers to a controversy over toll roads. The “protest vote” Libertarian candidate got 2% of the vote, which would have been far more than needed to defeat the Democrat. Likewise, the Republicans easily swept the down-ballot races, including electing Daniel Cameron as Kentucky’s first-ever black Attorney General. As for Trump harming Bevin, some polls showed him losing by double digits before Trump staged a rally to help him.

As for Trump harming Bevin, some polls showed him losing by double digits before Trump staged a rally to help him.
Meanwhile, in Mississippi, where the media had described the Governor’s race as a “nail-biter,” Republican Tate Reeves won by about 53-47%, following a big rally and endorsement by Trump.

If you’re looking for a more telling indicator of how Americans are thinking for 2020, look at places where the kind of far-left ideas promoted by the Democratic Presidential candidates were actually on the ballot. For instance, in Tucson, one of the most liberal outposts in Arizona that already operates basically as the state’s only “sanctuary city” (in typical liberal fashion, they use the misleading euphemism “Immigrant-welcoming city”), voters had the opportunity to make that declaration official. They practically screamed “NO!” by a 71.4% landslide. In Snohomish County, Washington, a sheriff who practiced typical liberal “soft on crime” policies was so unpopular with angry residents that he conceded to his “law-and-order” challenger before the first votes were even announced. And in Texas, voters approved a proposed constitutional amendment banning a state income tax by 76-24%. So the media might want to restrain their giddiness over a “blue wave” or a “purple Texas” until the actual votes are counted over a year from now.
