Andy Beshear Unseats Matt Bevin as Kentucky Governor On Nov.

5, Democrat Andy Beshear declared victory in Kentucky’s governor race, with precincts reporting 49.2 percent in his favor.

Beshear reportedly had a total of 709,577 votes, which is roughly 5,000 more than the Republican incumbent, Matt Bevin.

According to Vox, Beshear’s victory is attributed to his focus on statewide issues such as education and Medicaid protection.

His win in the highly conservative state is of particular significance as Donald Trump previously won the state by 30 points in the 2016 election.

However, Bevin has refused to concede to Beshear, meaning a recount will likely occur.
