Democrats Win Kentucky And Seize Virginia State Legislature

Democrats beat a Republican governor backed by President Donald Trump in Kentucky.

According to Reuters, Democrats also seized control of the state legislature in Virginia.

These wins could be a hint of what the outcome for the 2020 presidential election may be.

In Kentucky, Democratic Attorney General Andy Beshear narrowly beat Governor Matt Bevin.

This comes after Trump said Bevin’s defeat would be the president’s “greatest defeat in the history of the world.”
