Former Kentucky Governor Matt Bevin and President Donald Trump

Kentucky's pro-Trump governor was defeated by a Democrat

By

People across the United States took to the polls on Tuesday for a number of state and local elections. Perhaps the most important elections ahead of the 2020 federal elections were elections for governor in Kentucky, Louisiana, and Mississippi. 

In Kentucky, Democrat Andy Beshear was able to unseat Trump-ally Governor Matt Bevin in a state that voted 62.5% in favor of President Donald Trump in 2016. Beshear won by just over 5,000 votes in the state, which is almost totally controlled by Republicans.
