Wow. This is fantastic news tonight:
POLITICO – Republican Matt Bevin has won the Kentucky governor’s race, according to The Associated Press, defeating Democrat Jack Conway.
Bevin, a self-funding businessman who unsuccessfully challenged Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell in a primary last year, overcame a funding disadvantage and Kentucky’s Democratic lean in state races to become only the second Republican to win a gubernatorial election since the early 1970s.
BREAKING: Matt Bevin elected governor of Kentucky, only the 2nd Republican governor in 4 decades.
