(Worthy News) - Tuesday's state elections in Kentucky and Mississippi brought mixed results for President Donald Trump and the Republican Party, with the GOP enjoying down-ballot success despite splitting the higher-profile gubernatorial races.
In Kentucky, President Donald Trump's last-minute Lexington rally was not enough to save unpopular incumbent governor Matt Bevin, who trails Democrat Andy Beshear, the state's attorney general, by about 5,000 votes. Bevin, however, has refused to concede, suggesting "irregularities" are to blame for his election night deficit. He is expected to request a recount.
In Mississippi, Republicans retained control of the governor's mansion as Lt. Gov. Tate Reeves defeated Democratic attorney general Jim Hood by nearly 40,000 votes. Reeves will replace current Republican governor Phil Bryant, who is leaving office due to term limits. [ Source: Washington Free Beacon (Read More...) ]
