McConnell Moves On From Bevin: 'We'll Have A Different Governor In 3 Weeks'

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell says that it appears Gov. Matt Bevin has lost his bid for reelection, even though Bevin still hasn’t conceded the race.

Bevin has requested a recanvass of the final tally that showed Beshear winning by more than 5,000 votes last Tuesday. A recanvass is a minimal double check of each county’s final election results and historically has only produced minor differences in the final count.

But on Monday, McConnell signaled that the race was over.

“I’m sorry Matt came up short, but he had a good four years and I think all indications are — barring some dramatic reversal on recanvass — that we’ll have a different governor in three weeks,” McConnell told reporters after an event at North American Stainless in Ghent.

The unofficial results of last week’s election showed Beshear defeating Bevin by 5,189 votes after a hard-fought race that culminated with President Donald Trump rallying for Bevin on the eve of the election.

Bevin has questioned the results of the election without evidence. During a press conference last week, he made unfounded claims that thousands of absentee ballots had been improperly counted and other allegations.

8. Dragging it out in the news obviously isn't in Moscow Mitch's interest.

We can responsibly assume that because he's publicly intervening in state politics to throw Bevin's chance to fight the results under the bus. While Putin's Mitch would be battling to retain his own seat.

6. That's the kiss of death.

So long, Matt. You had a "good four years."
