President Donald Trump on Wednesday, Nov. 6, asserted that Kentucky election results is a victory for Republicans and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell will win big in next year.

Earlier, the president noted that Republicans won 5 out of 6 elections in Kentucky, and Matt Bevin rose at least 15 points in last day, that makes the governor race too close to call.

“Won 5 out of 6 elections in Kentucky, including 5 great candidates that I spoke for and introduced last night. Matt Bevin picked up at least 15 points in last days, but perhaps not enough (Fake News will blame Trump!). Winning in Mississippi Governor race!”

With 100% of precincts reporting, Beshear — the state’s attorney general and the son of Kentucky’s last Democratic governor, Steve Beshear — had a lead of 5,333 votes out of more than 1.4 million counted, or a margin of less than 0.4 percentage points, according to The Associated Press.

Mitch McConnell released a statement following the election results in Kentucky, celebrating Republican wins.

“Although we have a governor’s race that is too close to call, Republicans have much to celebrate tonight. A complete sweep of Constitutional offices with the Attorney General, Auditor, Commissioner of Agriculture, Secretary of State, and Treasurer is an amazing sign of strength for Republican governance in Kentucky,” McConnell wrote.

“I’m particularly proud of the historic election of Daniel Cameron, who will become the first African American Attorney General of Kentucky. I want to thank President Trump for his efforts to ensure all of these incredible candidates won their elections this evening,” he added.

Attorney Daniel Cameron became the first Republican elected attorney general of Kentucky on Tuesday night in more than 70 years, becoming the first African American ever to be elected to the position.

McConnell is in favor of winning re-election in Kentucky next year, even as national Democrats harbor hopes of defeating him. If Beshear prevails, the powerful senator will probably see a fundraising bonanza for a potential challenger, according to The Associate Press.
