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

Al Cross, director of the Institute for Rural Journalism and Community Issues at the University of Kentucky, said many voters - not just teachers - were moved to vote for Beshear because of Bevin's remarks about teachers. "We are gonna make sure that Kentucky isn't a sanctuary state". "You can't let that happen to me!", said Trump to the audience.

Democrat Andy Beshear defeated Republican Gov. Matt Bevin in deep-red Kentucky. "We want the process to be followed, and there is a process." . In particular, Bevin got into battles with the state's teachers, a popular constituency that Beshear eagerly embraced.

But Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez dismissed the suggestion that Democrats may seal their defeat next year by nominating a candidate who is too left wing for voters, instead predicting that Trump's divisive approach to the presidency would ultimately prove to be "terrible politics". Beshear - the son of Kentucky's last Democratic governor, Steve Beshear -named his top deputy in the attorney general's office, J. Michael Brown, to lead his transition team.

When there are a handful of off-year state elections, the pundits always rush to claim that there are enormous implications for whoever occupies the White House.

In his speech in Kentucky on Monday night, President Trump told voters that they needed to re-elect Bevin or else pundits would say Trump "suffered the greatest defeat in the history of the world".

U.S. Rep. James Comer, who lost to Bevin by 83 votes in the 2015 GOP gubernatorial primary, is among several Republicans suggesting that Bevin may need to accept the election results rather than initiate a bloody fight that could end up in the Republican-controlled legislature.

Winning a state-wide race in MS may be not much of a cause for celebration given the Virginia and Kentucky results, but on down nights a party will take happiness where they can find it. "Not a chance", said Gov. Bevin.

Apart from anything else, the election results may dictate what happens next in the impeachment process.

He gave Colman a firm "No" for an answer, though the actress noted that Prince William was still charming and lovely despite the bluntness.

He used big Republican majorities in his state legislature to push through controversial legislation that included dismantling an Obama-era public healthcare programme, occasionally became mired in controversy and generally catered primarily to his loyal supporters. In 2018, the Trump administration gave the state the first federal waiver to allow work requirements for Medicaid beneficiaries, though legal challenges have prevented the new rules from taking effect.

"I'm here to officially declare today, November 5, 2019, that Virginia is officially blue", Democratic Gov. Ralph Northam told a crowd of supporters in Richmond. Before the election, each chamber had one vacancy, and the Republicans had a 3-seat advantage in the House and a 2-seat advantage in the Senate. Like many supporters of work requirements, Bevin said they were created to cut costs and to help Medicaid enrollees personally. Just last weekend Vice President Pence and former Vice President Joe Biden held events in the state for their respective parties.

Kentucky and MS are traditionally red states, and Mr. Trump is in no danger of losing them in 2020.

Trump may depend on MS, where he also campaigned in the final stretch before Election Day, for something to crow about.

"You have to show, in order to overturn an election, that you have the goods", he said on WHAS-AM.

Democrats will now be able to draw legislative district lines for the coming decade that consolidate their power, and pass new gun-control restrictions and minimum-wage laws.

"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.
