LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Democrat Andy Beshear leads Kentucky Gov. Matt Bevin, a Republican, by a nearly 4,700-vote margin with all precincts reporting in the state — but Bevin is refusing to concede, telling supporters Tuesday night that the race was too close to call.

"This is a close, close race. We are not conceding this race by any stretch," Bevin said, one night after appearing with President Donald Trump at an election-eve rally. "We want the process to be followed, and there is a process." 

Beshear, the state attorney general, told his supporters that he had not spoken to his opponent but expects Bevin to "honor the election that was held tonight" and assist with the transition between administrations.

The Associated Press declined to project a winner in the race, citing the small margin between the candidates and Bevin's refusal to concede.

While the close result isn’t a necessarily sign of Democratic ascendancy in one of Trump’s strongest states in 2016, it still could represent an embarrassing moment for the president, who touted his strong record in rallies held the night before elections and predicted that the media would blame him if Bevin lost.

No one ran against the mayor on out little island, he does a good job, a repub, hates the trump...that had nothing to do with his win by acclamation. No party politics....our quasi cops/security guards make more the the mayor & council members.

(D-VA) Shelly Simonds ousts David Yancey in rematch of race that kept GOP in power in 2017

It was an exact tie in 2017, ultimately decided by drawing from a hat.

By Dave Ress Daily Press | Nov 05, 2019 | 8:36 PM | Newport News

This time, it won’t need a drawing of lots: Shelly Simonds won her third bid for the House of Delegates on Tuesday, defeating four-term Del. David Yancey, R-Newport News, who was returned to the legislature in 2017 when he won a lot-drawing after a tied election.

With all but the absentee ballots counted from a district dramatically reconfigured this year to lean strongly Democratic, Simonds won 58% of the vote, Yancey 40% and Libertarian Michael Bartley 2%.

“I think the message is that democracy works when people come out and vote,” Simonds said after her victory. “The people made it clear they’re concerned about healthcare, prescription drug prices, gun violence ... and they want action.”

Turnout was down about 18% from the 2017 tie vote.

5000 votes is not 'too close to call'.

Pretty much agree . . . but it's within the recount/canvas level . . .

When Biatch McCunthole is kicked out of the Senate in 2020, then I will say we really took Kentucky.
