In Jefferson County, home to Louisville, Beshear won by some 100,000 votes-that's up from the Democrat's margin of 37,000 in the last gubernatorial election.

"My message to each of them, to all of you-New York is for you", continued Williams.

That's internal the margin that can trigger a repeat in most states, and it's AP policy to now not call races that may well maybe also scoot to a repeat.

There is no mandatory recount law in Kentucky. "We want the process to be followed, and there is a process." . We hope that Matt Bevin honors the results of the recanvass, which will show he received fewer votes than Andy Bashear.

Bevin also accused Alison Lundergan Grimes, the Secretary of State, of committing fraud by announcing the election results live on CNN, mentioning that she is now the subject of a special state prosecutor's investigation for allegedly misusing voter records.

Turnout was heavy by the standards of off-year elections, but still quite low, just over 40 percent of registered voters. "As has been reported, a recanvassing has never changed the result of a Kentucky election". He claimed that "thousands of absentee ballots that were illegally counted", and cited unconfirmed reports of voters being "incorrectly turned away".

Tuesday's elections marked the third round of balloting since Trump was inaugurated.

During the campaign, Beshear pledged to restore "respect" and "Kentucky values" to the governor's office, and to protect Medicaid expansion and education funding, focusing the race on state and local issues instead of the nationalized vote Bevin wanted.

While Tuesday's results aren't necessarily predictive of what will happen next November, voters in multiple states tied their decisions to the national atmosphere, particularly the president.

Greg Valliere, chief USA policy strategist at AGF Investments, said that while the economy nationally may still favor Trump, the state-level outcomes point to other concerns for voters.

Winning a state-wide race in MS may be not much of a cause for celebration given the Virginia and Kentucky results, but on down nights a party will take happiness where they can find it. Muddying one of the night's most resounding Democratic victories, Bevin suggested baselessly on Wednesday night that there were "irregularities" in the voting process that led to his defeat.

In These Times has been selected to participate in NewsMatch-the largest grassroots fundraising campaign for nonprofit news organizations. Bevin hinted for the first time Tuesday night there might be "irregularities" to look into but didn't offer specifics.

While Bevin wasn't conceding, some prominent Kentucky Republicans acknowledged that Beshear won.

Also on social media, GOP state Rep. Jason Nemes said: "Governor-elect Beshear is entitled to the democratic legitimacy that comes with loser's consent. So let's go through the process honorably and expeditiously and give it to him".

Four years ago, Republican Matt Bevin won the Kentucky governorship by campaigning as an outspoken businessman outsider. Then again, it is hard to know how much that election was really about Alabama voters rejecting Trump as it was about the numerous and credible allegations that the Republican nominee engaged in inappropriate sexual conduct with minors. Bevin would need to seek and win a court's approval for a recount. With Republican Gov. Phil Bryant term-limited, GOP nominee Tate Reeves defeated Democrat Jim Hood to extend the GOP's 20-year hold on the state's top office. Still, a Bevin upset would leave Trump explaining why his signature tactic of late campaign rallies wasn't enough in a state he won easily in 2016.

Turnout in Kentucky was up by almost 50% over the state's 2015 governor's race, increasing from 974,000 voters to more than 1.4 million.

Tuesday's election results prompted some Wall Street analysts to review their outlook for next year's presidential vote. Members from both parties are permitted to be present during the re-canvassing. In two other Philadelphia-area suburbs, they captured Chester County's board of commissioners for the first time in history and seized control of Bucks County's board of commissioners for the first time since the 1980s.
