Gov. Bevin officially requests recanvass in general election

Donald Trump shakes hands with Kentucky Governor Matt Bevin the night before polls opened on his re-election bid

This is nothing new.

"Together, we will end cash bail", said Katz at her Election Night gathering at the Queens County Democratic offices. Otherwise, we can be overwhelmed by the thousands of bits of information that we take in each day.

Thursday, November 14 marks the start of the recanvass of Kentucky's governor's race.

The fact that Democrats won across the country on Tuesday night, retaking the Virginia state legislature while coming up big in the Philadelphia suburbs, indicates that this red-baiting is not a winning strategy-especially considering that open democratic socialists themselves had a good night.

During the DE election, the Democrats dominated the Republicans in two sub-areas in Philadelphia as they show their dominance in Chester County's board of commissioners for the first time in the history and in the Buck's County board of commissioners since 1980s. While many will argue that Tuesday's results represent a rejection of President Donald Trump by Virginia voters, that's a simplistic interpretation. It's doubtful that the results would have been the same if each party had raised similar amounts of money.

After Kentucky's Democratic gubernatorial candidate Andy Beshear pulled off an upset victory over Trump-endorsed Gov. Matt Bevin (R) on Tuesday night, President Donald Trump and his conservative allies performed Olympic-level verbal gymnastics to argue that Bevin's defeat actually proved Trump's "political star power".

With presidential elections one year away, the Democrats claimed a narrow but significant victory in the race to be governor of Kentucky.

Public hearings on Donald Trump impeachment ‘next week’
Earlier this week, Schiff announced that the first public hearings would take place on Wednesday, Nov. 13. He is the top Republican on the oversight committee.

But without proof of massive fraud or irregularities, Comer warned about the signal it would send if Bevin, formally contested the election after the recanvass, putting the outcome in the hands of state lawmakers. It is notable that every other statewide office in Kentucky went for the Republican by at least 5 points.

Bevin lagged well behind the vote totals for the rest of the GOP statewide candidates. "As it turns out, when the governor slashes social programs in one of the poorest states in America, voters don't want to re-elect him", Alex Wagner, a contributing editor at The Atlantic, said Wednesday.

However, Republicans did triumph in all the other state official elections in Kentucky, including the attorney general, agriculture commissioner, auditor, secretary of state, and treasurer.

Bevin had served with Lt. Gov. Jenean Hampton, an African American woman. Bevin picked fights with and offended Kentucky teachers over pension reform, resulting in a major voter backlash. A Morning Consult poll from the third quarter of this year reported Bevin's approval rating was 34% and his disapproval rating was 53%, the second-lowest among the nation's governors.

Bevin talked about national issues in an attempt to draw out the Republican base. Close doesn't count in elections. That's down significantly from general elections in 2016 and 2018. But lightning doesn't often strike twice (Hillary Clinton was a bad general election candidate - appearing aloof, entitled and irritated to have to campaign).

"If the Republicans in the (state) General Assembly tried to undo an election, that's kind of what we've been criticizing the Democrats in Washington of trying to do with this baseless impeachment inquiry", Comer said in a phone interview.
