Democratic Attorney General Andy Beshear, the son of the former governor, has beaten incumbent Republican Gov. Matt Bevin after a bitter race, according to Kentucky's secretary of state.
Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes told CNN’s Chris Cuomo her office has called the race, and they do not believe the difference in the vote can be made up by Bevin. A recanvass could still be requested.
CNN has not yet made a projection in the race.
Bevin, a sometimes polarizing figure who had faced political struggles in his first term, had tied himself to President Trump in his campaign, in a state where Trump won by nearly 30 points. The President went to Lexington to hold a rally for Bevin on the eve of the election.
