1. When we show up we win.

The turnout in both of those states was much higher than anyone expected. Get out the vote!!! Ignore polls, get out the vote!!!

6. plus, every Bevin ad featured Trump

He kept reminding people whose butt he was kissing, who he was working for.

Some teachers voted for Bevin in spite of his continuous attacks on education, teachers' salaries, teachers' retirement, and teachers' health insurance.

4. That's why 2020 is all about running against Trump

supporting increasing the min wage to $10, $12, $15 or $20 doesn't matter if your opponent wants it to be $0.00

5. Beshear ran ads with Trump supporters stating they were going to vote for Bevin.

He was very careful not to alienate Trump supporters, so I don't think the author of the article is reading the Kentucky race correctly. Trump may have mobilized the Democrats to get out and vote, but many, many people voted a straight Republican ticket except for the governor's race.

7. Juli is MY representative on the Board

I am so PROUD!

And yes, she explicitly used Trump in her campaign. That was a good move.
