3. 11. In 2019, Kentucky elected a great Democratic Governor and Lt. Governor.

Background from Wikipedia https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Andy_Beshear#2019_gubernatorial_election :

2019 gubernatorial election
Main article: 2019 Kentucky gubernatorial election

On July 9, 2018, Beshear declared his candidacy for the Democratic nomination for Governor of Kentucky in the 2019 election. His running mate was Jacqueline Coleman, a nonprofit president, assistant principal, and former state house candidate. Beshear said he would make public education a priority. In May 2019, he won the Democratic nomination with 38% of the vote in a three-way contest.

The night of the November 5, 2019, election, Beshear faced off against the unpopular incumbent Republican Governor Matt Bevin, the least popular governor in the United States, with only a 33% approval rating in April 2019. Many outlets called Beshear the "apparent winner," but the Associated Press called the race "too close to call," with less than half a percent of the vote separating the candidates.

Beshear won by 0.37 percentage points, getting 49.20% of the vote to Bevin's 48.83%. It was the closest Kentucky gubernatorial election ever by percentage, and the closest race of the 2019 gubernatorial election cycle in the United States.[citation needed] Bevin won 97 counties, while Beshear won only 23 counties. Days later, Bevin had not yet conceded the race, claiming large-scale voting "irregularities" but not offering evidence, while Kentucky Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes' office nevertheless declared Beshear the winner. On November 14, 2019, Bevin conceded the election after a recanvass was performed at his request that resulted in just a single change, an additional vote for a write-in candidate.

Ultimately, Beshear defeated Bevin in the state's two largest cities, Louisville and Lexington, both of which he won with over 60 percent of the vote. He also narrowly carried normally heavily Republican Campbell and Kenton counties in Northern Kentucky as well as several counties in Eastern Kentucky that traditionally had voted Democratic but had shifted to generally Republican support in recent elections. Beshear carried only two of the state's six congressional districts, but those districts were the state's two most urbanized, the Louisville-based 3rd and the Lexington-based 6th.


Andy has done a fantastic job on our pandemic response, or at least as good as anyone could with a Rethug Legislature and state full of ass-backward Rethug voters.

KY.......

5. YES!

I am very proud of our governor and the job he's done. But I worry that the only reason he won, was because everybody hated Bevin. Do you think he'll win again?

4. #8 FDR

WAs looking at old NYT. FDR was in bad shape. I hadnít really noticed before but he always has those dark bags under his eyes. Is that from polio or something else? Amazing how he brought the allied powers together to defeat the axis, but lots of other stuff too.

6. No. Just sheer and utter exhaustion.

From shepherding a nation through the Great Depression and World War II.

Picture how much older and more tired two-term Presidents look after their time in office. Then remember that FDR was elected to four terms, and spent twelve years in the office.

All this, while governing from a wheelchair...
