While most people are just gearing up for the 2020 elections, there are three states that are having potentially significant elections today.

First there's the Kentucky gubernatorial race. Incumbent Republican Governor Matt Bevin has been labeled as one of the most unpopular governors in the country with low approval ratings. His aggressive style has led to many Republicans in the state feeling alienated. Meanwhile, his Democrat opponent, Attorney General Andy Beshear, is seeking to return the state to "Kentucky values." He is the son of former governor Steve Beshear who was well liked during his tenure. Andy however is perceived as being farther Left than his moderate father. The most recent polls have the two tied but a Trump rally last night may be enough to secure Bevin another term.

Next there's a gubernatorial race in Mississippi. This is an open seat race between Republican Lt Gov Tate Reeves against Democrat Attorney General Jim Hood. While one might expect Reeves to have this in the bag, if there's one Dem that could take the state it's Hood. Hood is running on a centrist platform that's pro-gun and anti-abortion. One of the few policies where he differs from his opponent is a desire to expand Medicaid. One thing that makes this race even more interesting to watch is that Mississippi has a Jim Crow-era law that requires a candidate to win both the majority of the voters and the majority of the districts. Even if Hood manages to win the majority vote there's pretty much no way he can win the majority of districts. If that happens it becomes up to the state legislature, which has a Republican supermajority, to decide the governor. If that occurs expect this law to be challenged in the courts as one judge has already expressed grave concerns over its constitutionality.

Finally, Virginia is holding its legislative elections. The Republicans currently hold a slight majority in the House and Senate. In fact their control of the Senate is so narrow it was literally decided by drawing a name out of a hat. While Virginia is still considered a swing state it has been getting steadily more Blue with each election. In fact the last election saw the largest swing in state history. This is the Dems' best chance at getting a win tonight and I will not be surprised if they take both the House and Senate.

The impeachment hoax has fired many Voters and Trumps tweets on every single one of those states are upwards of 60 to 80k each and virtually less than a thousand responses.

The Dems are not in good light and I seriously doubt they can take the Senate, maybe maintain a smaller grip on the House, but I'm expecting a Super Majority once again and with the head RINO slayed, McCain, an remaining rinos too small with no real power, Trump will unleash.

Be interesting to see what happens in Kentucky. The polls are in favor of the Dem challenger. Will they get it right or wrong?

Cheers

Sorry. The only people that call the impeachment proceedings a “hoax” are the people that are already in Donald Trumps cult of personality. Everyone else sees it for exactly what it is.

You’re right about Trump firing up voters though. Just not in the way you think.

I love your delusional views, it provides a rare glimpse into an echo chamber rife with liberal craziness.

Everyone, as in the American people, see it for the sham it is, so much so that No republican voted on the House resolution and saw two Democrat defectors as well as a reinforced commitment that no Repub will vote on removal or conviction in the Senate 😌

Gosh, must suck to already know the end result of your sham, you people got nothing 😏

I would guess VA to go blue and once it does, it will prolly stay that way.

Kentucky should go blue but..............who knows.

Mississippi is just a lost cause.

It’s a fascinating insight in to the delusional Dems and their supporters mental illness, where they don’t care about Biden’s corruption but have a problem with Trump trying to investigate it.
Always the deranged double standard.

I know, it is so absurd. A sitting US Vice President breaks the law but a sitting US President cannot investigate him because he is running for President. Now we know why Biden ran for President.

"Hey, you cannot jail me for robbing the bank, I am running for President!"

Looking at the numbers now it appears the that Beschear will defeat Bevin narrowly in Kentucky. I wouldnt necessarily call that a big victory for the Dems though given Bevin's unpopularity.

Kentucky just elected its first Republican attorney general in over 70 years. And he is African American. President Trump is right. His policies are lifting everyone.

seems Kentucky followed the trend of dem gov republican gov dem gov as it appears the republican candidate has lost but he seemed wildly unpopular and Kentucky has never had a two term republican governor ,but the new governor gets to enjoy the republicans having veto proof super majorities in both the senate and house as far as local legislators go

saw a few sites trying to say this was an "upset" but as kentucky had dem govenors from 1947-1999 i think and have had the pattern of dem republican dem since 2003 i think?

Unfortunately, 21 some counties out of 120 decided they wanted the idiot Beshear as governor.

I seriously hope the new AG sues Beshear for everything he does in office like Beshear did to Bevin.

Hey Indiana... can't yall annex Louisville? It'd make a nice addition to New Albany!

Bevin was damn close at 48.9 compared to Beshear at 49.2, 100%.

Sucks, but if the dude was that incredibly unpopular, than the voters saw fit to remove him.

He was only unpopular due to the media and teachers unions. No, the voters didn't see fit. This is the problem with a popular election. The few dictate for the rest of us. Louisville and Lexington, two cities saw to his election. And by overpopulation, Beshear won.

eh i think it had more to do that a whopping 10 seats won by democrats ran UNOPPOSED which seems kind of odd that they couldn't find any independent or even republican opponents
