Kentucky race isn’t official until Trump tweets something critical of Bevin

Wonder if Trump will blame Kentucky on McConnell.

Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale: "The President just about dragged Gov. Matt Bevin across the finish line, helping him run stronger than expected in what turned into a very close race at the end."

President Trump yesterday: "You’re sending that big message to the rest of the country, it’s so important… Because if you lose it sends a really bad message. And they will build it up. You can’t let that happen to me.” https://t.co/kL49dDKGEk https://t.co/R6VbW6VLpa

Fayette County, which is where Trump held his rally last night, voted for Andy Beshear over Matt Bevin in a 2 to 1 landslide pic.twitter.com/LF4mIZ8BxL

Bevin was the only candidate Trump campaigned for and he lost. That’s the headline.

Hearing that a big reason Trump agreed to go down to do a rally for Bevin in the first place was that Parscale told him that Bevin was up 5. pic.twitter.com/P6cQ6Sf7XG

Anyway, the thing you need to know about Matt Bevin is that he is such an asshole that a small but significant number of people who genuinely believe Obama was the antichrist and Trump anointed by God still pulled the lever for the other guy.

This dispatch from @timcraigpost last month, when a Republican voter said she wouldn’t vote for Bevin even if Trump personally asked her to do so: “I would tell President Trump to his face, ‘Why are you even supporting this jerk?’?” https://t.co/UPhduPAvV1

Never overstate a single race. Bevin is a bit toxic. Tried to dismantle popular ACA plan etc. But at the end of the day Trump and Bevin went all in on impeachment and it couldn’t save Bevin in one of the reddest states in the country.

Folks, Mitch McConnel and Rand Paul must immediately support impeachment. https://t.co/BUpWPd5QFA

As a guy working for Senator Cochran when he beat Chris McDaniel and McDaniel refused to concede, here’s a little tip for Matt Bevin: no one cares. Your concession or refusal means nothing. Go get in a fight behind the Waffle House and get over it.

Whoa, a Kentucky reporter on MSNBC right now just said that Trump’s visit may have energized Democratic voters and help cost the GOP incumbent the election.

R’s are saying that Bevin’s loss doesn’t matter because he was a singularly arrogant executive who picked stupid fights that alienated suburban voters. Oh. I guess that has no applicability to 2020 then. Hmmm. Also, pls explain Virginia.
