After Recanvass, Andy Beshear Officially Wins Kentucky Governor Race

Beshear thanked Matt Bevin and his team for beginning a smooth transition.

(Frankfort, Ky.) – Matt Bevin has conceded the Kentucky governor’s race.

The incumbent Republican said Thursday afternoon that he will not contest results showing Democrat Andy Beshear winning the governor’s race.

The announcement comes after Bevin requested a recanvass, which required all Kentucky counties to double-check vote totals.

The recanvass failed to significantly change the close final margin that saw Beshear receive over 5,000 votes more than Bevin.

The new Governor-elect of Kentucky took to Twitter Thursday to thank Bevin and his team for beginning a smooth transition.

Beshear will take office next month with a focus on securing good jobs, accessing affordable health care, protecting and funding our pensions and supporting public education.
