This week in Kentucky politics, Attorney General Andy Beshear beat Gov. Matt Bevin at the ballot box, but Bevin still hasn’t conceded the election.

Bevin has asked for a second look of the results and has hinted at an official election contest. But even Republicans have started to distance themselves from the governor. Rick Howlett from member station WFPL talked to capitol reporter Ryland Barton for this week’s edition of Kentucky Politics Distilled.

Ryland Barton is the Managing Editor for Collaboratives for Kentucky Public Radio, a group of public radio stations including WKMS, WFPL in Louisville, WEKU in Richmond and WKYU in Bowling Green. A native of Lexington, Ryland most recently served as the Capitol Reporter for Kentucky Public Radio. He has covered politics and state government for NPR member stations KWBU in Waco and KUT in Austin.
