All eyes are on Kentucky’s gubernatorial election, where the latest Mason-Dixon poll of Kentucky shows that Republican incumbent, Matt Bevin and his Democratic Challenger Andy Beshear, tied at 46 percent.
LOUISVILLE, Ky. – As voters head to the polls in the Kentucky gubernatorial contest on Tuesday, Democrats say, the results could be choice of an indicator of what is shaping up to be a closely monitored race in the year 2020: Senate majority Leader Mitch McConnell re-campaign.
Kentucky is one of only three States, the election of a Governor this year. Polls suggest a close contest between the Republican incumbent, Mike Bevin, and Democratic Challenger Andy Beshear: the latest Mason-Dixon poll in Kentucky shows, Bevin, and Beshear is tied with 46 percent.
Some Democrats, though, are looking ahead to the state Senate race in the year 2020-where they dream of the displacement of the longtime Kentucky senator and Republican Senate leader — despite his history of beating back a Democratic Challenger.
TRUMP IS NOT ON THE BALLOT, BUT HE IS FRONT AND CENTER IN THIS MONTH OF THE KEY GUBERNATORIAL ELECTIONS
A tight race for the Democratic voters, as well as Susan Jarl translated in a race against McConnell, the President Trump will be on the vote in the next year.
“We have to pass first to set the pace in the state, because it is so important what is on the state and local level,” the Earl told Fox News. “Then you come back and Mitch McConnell and Trump in the next year. It would be a miracle and such a blessing.”
A spokesman for McConnell did not immediately return a request for comment.
McConnell is the longest serving Republican Senate leader in history and was re-elected six times. A well-financed challenge by Democrat Alison Lundergan Grimes received national attention in 2014, but McConnell handily defeated her by 15 points this year.
McConnell’s has not, however, the story ceased to be Democratic opponents from emerging countries, including retired Navy pilot, Amy McGrath. They raised $10 million in just 24 hours of the announcement, you would be against the Senate majority leader.
But policy-professor Dewey Clayton at the University of Louisville said that it will continue to be challenging for Democrats, the same Kentucky gubernatorial race to the Senate close races in the year 2020.
REPUBLICAN GOV. MATT BEVIN, AIMS, KENTUCKY HISTORY, WITH THIS YEAR’S RE-ELECTION BID
“McConnell is a skilled politician, and although he said to himself as unpopular, he has deep roots here,” Clayton. “He knows how to win elections, he knows how to help others, to win elections, and he’s been in office so long, he helped, in turn, in this state, therefore, as a blue state into a red state.”
And the Republican voters vote.
“I think we see a trend in our country, where we are tired, some of the old politicians and I think many of us are looking for a change, but I said to support Mitch McConnell,” Kentucky voters Eric Titus.
His campaign manager, Kevin Golden, but said appeal: “leader McConnell and our campaign is focused on making sure that the Governor Bevin, [state attorney general nominated] Daniel, Cameron and the rest of the Republicans are successful on election night.”
It is clear, McConnell is preparing for the fight: so far, he has over 9 million dollars cash on hand for his re-election bid in the year 2020.
