Here's the Latest on the Kentucky Governor Race

CNN Headline Blames Trump for Kentucky Governor's Loss, but Analysis Excuses Trump

In two other Philadelphia-area suburbs, they captured Chester County's board of commissioners for the first time in history and seized control of Bucks County's board of commissioners for the first time since the 1980s.

Indeed, the high turnout was one of the first takeaways longtime Democratic consultant and Kentucky native Jim Cauley noticed on Tuesday night.

More than twice as many people in Virginia voted in state legislative races than in the last similar election four years ago.

Kentuckians' understandable desire for economic prosperity, their association of that prosperity with coal, and the resulting perception that they must support Republicans to defend coal, have all formed a tightly-mortared political brick wall - one that's been almost impossible for Democrats to break through.

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's 2020 campaign manager tried to find a positive frame for the results in a state Trump won by 30 percentage points in 2016.

Off-year state elections in the U.S. can be a mixed bag or harbingers of things to come.

"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".

President Trump held a rally in Kentucky on Monday and welcomed Bevin onto the stage. The fierce contest was being watched closely for early signs of how the increasingly partisan impeachment furor in Washington might affect Trump and other Republican incumbents in 2020.

The Democratic National Committee said the elections this week showed that a "revolt" is still ongoing against Mr. Trump by independent, suburban voters. Matt thinks there's been some "irregularities" in the voting process. "He'll dominate next year".

A well-funded and subversive leftist movement of teachers in the United States threatens to tilt the political balance nationwide in the direction of Democrats across the country as Republicans barely hang on in key states that they need to hold for President Donald Trump to win re-election and for Republicans to have a shot at retaking the House and holding onto their Senate majority. However, behind the disparity of turn-outs, Matt Bevin did not still concede and may ask for a recanvas if he is willing to shoulder the expenses and its cost.

With all precincts reporting in, the official tally saw Democratic candidate Andy Bashear leading by 5,333 out of over 1.4 million ballots counted. 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. Kentucky's recount law, however, does not apply to a governor's election, Grimes' office said.

The results raised the question of why the president embraced an unpopular governor so late in the campaign. Most immediately, it underscored GOP worries about a shifting electoral playing field ahead of 2020.

Sen. Thom Tillis, R-N.C., who faces a tight reelection race next year in a swing state, said that he didn't "see a wave there". Don't say I didn't warn you. Especially in the suburbs, where Trump is viewed, at best, as out of step and out of touch.

Democrats may have their own lessons from Tuesday's elections. As the party's presidential candidates debate ambitious, big-ticket items such as "Medicare for All", moderates urged caution.

The votes that powered Beshear's projected win mostly came from urban areas, CNN analyst John King said on the program. We don't want to delegitimize his victory. "They were all running away from the national Democrats", he said. Michael Bennet of Colorado, seemed to echo that.

"I'm not anxious about what national pundits or what national Democrats are saying", Beshear said. Democrats ran some really strong candidates in parts of the North Country - Julie Garcie in that Supreme Court justice race, Derek Doty, a Democrat in the North Elba town supervisor race, Paul Roalsvig, a Democrat in the Hamilton County District Attorney Race.
