The Kentucky Democrat beat Trump’s Republican Governor.
Although Republicans managed to win several races for key positions, Governor is the top of the ticket. That is the Bellwether position. That was the election Trump focused his energies on.
This Republican Party loss has to be quite disconcerting for Kentucky Senator “Moscow Mitch” McConnell, who is up for re-election in 2020. McConnell expended a lot of energy and political capital in his genuine effort to support his erstwhile rival Bevin. Mitch is likely weakened by this loss.
Moscow Mitch and Trump are tied at the hip. Time will tell whether or not Kentucky voters were rejecting both Trump and McConnell.
Meanwhile, “Moscow Mitch” is singing “UN Happy Day…Un-Happy Day!” “My State, My State, My State is on Fire…We don’t need no water let the Republican Party Burn.”
