Democrats Win State House and Senate in Virginia, Claims Narrow Victory in Kentucky Governor’s Race

Democrats Take Full Control of Both Chambers of the Legislature in Virginia


Democrats have emerged victorious in the race for the state house and state senate in Virginia for the first time in more than two decades.

In Kentucky, the Democratic Challenger, Andy Beshear, is ahead by 5,100 votes, with 100 percent of the precincts counted. Republican incumbent Matt Bevin refused to concede the election to Beshear, who presented himself as the winner.

Beshear told voters that his performance was a message that elections were still about “right versus wrong” instead of right versus left.

Bevin, on the other hand, told supporters that he was “not conceding by any stretch,” and wants the process be followed.

The hotly contested Kentucky governor’s race saw campaigns stretch to Tuesday night with President Trump holding a rally at Rupp Arena in Lexington meant as a last-minute boost to Bevin.

In the election eve Republican rally, President Donald Trump told supporters that Matt Bevin losing would “send a really bad message.”
