During a series of interviews on talk radio shows Wednesday morning, outgoing Republican Gov. Matt Bevin said that he lost his race for reelection because the Democratic Party “harvested votes in urban communities.”
Democratic candidates for statewide office including gubernatorial candidate Attorney General Andy Beshear finished a campaign bus tour the day before Election Day, with several stops throughout west Kentucky.
Democrat Andy Beshear told Kentuckians on Wednesday that a vote for him as governor will be a vote to defend public education and access to health care, which he said are under attack by Republican Gov. Matt Bevin.
Gov. Matt Bevin and Attorney General Andy Beshear squared off in another gubernatorial debate Monday night, one of the last opportunities for voters to see the candidates make their cases before Election Day.
Kentucky’s governor is the most powerful official in state government. The governor is in charge of managing the agencies that make up the various components of state government like health care, corrections, education and transportation.
