  The Kentucky Governor’s Race Is a Warning to Republicans The Republican incumbent couldn’t overcome the unpopularity of the party’s agenda. That doesn’t bode well for the GOP in 2020.Donald Trump wants his party to believe that he was the hero of the campaign in Kentucky, who almost—but not quite—rescued a deeply unpopular governor from defeat.

Donald Trump insisted Tuesday night that if Kentucky ' s Republican governor Matt Bevin ultimately loses his position in a fiery election disaster, it' s not his fault. 'Our big Kentucky Rally on Monday night had a massive impact on all of the races,' the president tweeted.

Bevin is unpopular in Kentucky and has had some bruising political fights, including one with the state's public school teachers over education cuts.

Beshear, who served as the state's attorney general, is the son of former Kentucky Governor Steve Beshear. Per PBS, Beshear beat Bevin by around 5,000 votes in a close-run race.

President Trump held a rally in Kentucky on Monday and welcomed Bevin onto the stage. Bevin urged Kentucky to vote Republican to show that the state supports Trump.

Trump said that losing the election would send "a really bad message to the rest of the country" and "you can't let that happen to me."

However, Republicans did triumph in all the other state official elections in Kentucky, including the attorney general, agriculture commissioner, auditor, secretary of state, and treasurer.

  For the GOP, the suburbs are the new Florida (Opinion) Alice Stewart writes that Tuesday's elections proved to be a good night for Democrats, a bad night for an unpopular governor, and a teachable moment for President Trump and the Republican Party. Key races in Kentucky, Mississippi, and Virginia tested the political landscape one year out from the 2020 presidential election. Yet, before anyone labels this as a referendum on President Trump, remember, he was not on the ballot, and Democrats were on a mission to make inroads in suburbia. require(["medianetNativeAdOnArticle"], function (medianetNativeAdOnArticle) { medianetNativeAdOnArticle.

Speaking to Fox News host Laura Ingraham, Trump Jr., the president's eldest son, lambasted those pinning the blame for Bevin's loss on his father.

"Any opportunity to try to take a swipe," Trump Jr. told Ingraham. "They don't talk about the rest of the Republican ticket sweeping. They don't talk about the first African-American attorney general—who happens to be a Republican—elected.

"They don't mention that Trump helped propel those guys to those places. And yeah, I like Matt Bevin, he's been a friend of mine, he's a good guy, but he's picked a lot of battles, he teed off on a lot of people in Kentucky, that's not always popular, we understand how that works."

Trump Jr. added: "Like I said, I think he's done a good job but Matt Bevin has picked some fights. So, this has nothing to do with Trump. Again, they swept the rest of the ticket...Keep knocking Trump, guys, see how it worked last time."

Brad Parscale, campaign manager of Trump 2020, also sought to minimize the Democratic win in Kentucky, having earlier claimed the president "just about dragged" Bevin to victory.
